Which shocks after lift?
I am starting to put together stuff for my 3 inch lift. Front spindles and Explorer leafs in the rear with blocks or shackles. So it should be an even 3 inches all around.
Ideally I would get some Bilstein 5100s but after lift, wheels, and tires I doubt they will be in my budget.
I think after I lift I would be just a tad taller that regular 4x4s (probably only because of 32s anyway) so can I go up to Autozone and get some regular old Monroe or Gabriel shocks for a 2000 4x4 and be good to go?
I honestly could care less about ride quality so that doesn't matter, I just don't want my 2WD shocks to hold the rear end down or cause wheel hop or something.
If I really wanted to be cheap I could always just get rear shocks since I won't "need" new ones with the spindle lift. Plus I replaced all my shocks last year with Gabriel Pro Guards. So I could just swap out my rears for the 4x4 size ones.
What do you guys think? Obviously 5100 will be the consensus but really I just need a quick fix for my rear lift. So will the regular stock 4x4 size shocks work for what I need?
