Are we talking about 99+ superduty shock towers? How long of a shock would I need if running 4 inch lift with the Ford towers?

Snow Hill, Maryland, go east \'till you hit water
I run 14 inch 5150's up front @ something like $99.00 a pop but I think they handle great both on and off-road. I honestly could not believe how smooth the ride was. Very happy! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
