deaver f31 springs on stock height. what length shock
I just got my fox remote reservoir 5 inch travel shocks for the front with eibach coils. I am just waiting for my bracket kit to get here. Cant wait. I am also waiting for my deaver springs, they shouldbe here any day now. Im gonna be running them with the shackle flipped and no block on the rearend. Does anyone know what length shock ill be using. Or basically should i wait and cycle the suspension so i know for sure what ones to order. Im assuming i wont be able to get ones much if any longer than the stock ones when compressed. I have crappy monroe 59038 from advanced auto rite now and they are 11 inch travel. 15.375" collapsed, 26.375" extended. These are the ones that advanced auto gave me for my truck. They ride horrible. Barely any better than the ones i took off that had leaked all the fluid out. But they were only 25$ a piece. So u get what u pay for. Fox 11 inch travel are 17 inch colapsed and 28 extended. Dont know if their too long when collapsed.
