I figgure its when my truck was used as a work truck in the bush before I bought it the blistens were exspsed a beating daily and alot of sand and gritty dirt. 3/4 shocks have oil all over them ( seam to be leaking) So I have to replace them right?
And how long is the break in period on new ones?
Here's the problem, I have about a 1" T bar crank ( looking to go another ") and I'm Planning on putting a new shackel in the back a 1-2 adjustable one.. link-> http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?...m=370168356577
So I would like to find shocks that can handle 0-2 inches of lift in case I ever go back to stock height or anything and for a good ride, as good as it was before. That is 2 inches of lift on top of my FX4 Level 2 pacage alretty. 2003
So what are my options, looking for cheaper fixes but good quality!
1. replacment blistens of corse same as OEM but there not for lifted trucks right.
2. KYB , they state for 0-2 inch raised but under specs say "2/89 and later, except FX4." WTF! http://store.summitracing.com/partde...641+4294907043
3. Rancho- RSX17030 , says for Amount Raised0-1 1/2 in. but then further down "Application Notes Not for models with High Ryder option. " whats high ryder! http://store.summitracing.com/partde...641+4294907043
4. Rancho RS999126 , these are so exspnsive! but say for lifted or stock trucks and are adjustible.
5. Pro comps ES3000
So yeah, what should I do? and where's the cheapest place to get shocks? I live in canada BTW so shipping will be a pain if I buy from us.
