The work I do forces me to heavy duty shocks, and I've heard amazing things about the Monomax That, plus removing teh rear blocks and putting in some AAL's will do the trick pretty nicely on preventing bed sag.. bit stiff of aride, sure.. but much more loadworthy.

I would be interested to see if you like them. The fronts are really bouncy on mine.

I have MonoMax's all the way around, and they are some of the stiffest shocks I have ever delt with, but they are the best (imo) for offroading or hauling. They keep the tires glued to the ground and keeps body roll from happening better than any other shock I have ever seen.

Exactly! :-) Which is what any truck needs.. if its used for what a truck is normally used for.. hell, even doing drag with a slightly modified engine coudl benefit from teh constant downforce of the tires... I plan on getting a sway bar setup and traction bar here in the near future... as long as the new Air Intake I ordered up (In the 4.0 SOHC/OHV Section)

I have to say, change your truck to Amazon Green and it looks identical to mine, minus the hitch reciever and clear lights. Your truck is beautimous! And the terrain is kinda like what I go offroading on. Definetly considering Monomax.....

They are excellent! Thanks! Your Ranger must be just as nice. If ya ever in North GA hit me up. There is a few members on here that went with me to that same place. Use the search button and search for Union Grove, there is a bunch of pics from that place and even a video of me and a 86 toyota in a tug of war pulloff, needless to say, I won!! :-)

New parts in the morning.. theres nothing quite like waking up, getting a nice hot cup of coffee after you shower up.. then sitting back in your morning relax-clothes, hearing a knock at the door, and theres a couple wonderful boxes of garage work goodness waiting for you :-)



EDIT: Didnt feel like uploading any pictures right now.. but I did upload a random video of when I jsut pulled teh shocks out and was hopping around liek a fish on teh floor under my truck (laughs_ Well, its not bad.. but it shows you why sometimes you just gotta replace them shocks.. they will kill your suspension..!
