2wd = Struts?

http://www.4wheelonline.com/Products...ProductId=1341

Perhaps I failed to use the right wording while doing a search on this forum, so I've got a question for all of you fine people.

I know that 4x4s have front and REAR axles, and that 4x2s only have a rear. Now, this question may be cut and dry, but I can't call them today (Sunday) and I work 40+hrs starting tomorrow, so... will these shocks fit on my truck? Does my 2wd have the infamous struts that is going to make me call in and order by talking to an individual?

Also, if that's the case with these shocks... does that mean that FABTECH shocks put my truck in the same situation and I'd need to "special" order them instead of buying a used set? This sucks.

You should be able to install them in just under an hr...no need to take it anywhere.
