Blew out the front shocks... ooops

I was up wheeling with a few buddy's today, I came up on this rise in the road a little too fast and got 2 feet of air off of it. It was cool, but I think i blew the seals out of my shocks. Anyone know what types of shocks will fit the 2002 FX4?

yup blistens came stock if I remember correctly so put another one. Might as well change out both from front seeing as how both front tires hit the ground that hard. I'm sure all your shocks hate you.

I didn't get any pictures, it was one of those "OH ****" moments when it happened. My buddy in his Cherokee behind me said I got a good 2 feet of air off of it. The truck sits fine, front dips a little, but bounces like a MF over any type of bump.

Any idea how much the Bilstein 5100's cost?

ive done stuff like this befor. never blew one out, that i know of. About time to upgrade anyways for me. but i remember having a pair of Procomp ES3000's which are mediocre at best. and landing down hard from 4 feet.

If your concerned about Blowing out more. and still like to romp around. check out some bump stops that are larger. either go with aftermarket bs. or for instance you can pull the huge ones off of a 350 super duty and theyll still bolt on with a lil trim of the edge of the bump stop itself.:P
