Superlift

What do i do to the brass fittings on the 98-99 knuckels? Im using them on a 05. And are superlift shocks supposed to say in when pushed in? I always though that meant they were shot but have be told otherwise.

if you are talking about the pvh (pulse vacuum hub) fitting you just cap it off since you wont use it. i have heard that superlift shocks are garbage, but i have never usd any. hope this helps

The Superlift shocks aren't that great, but you don't an option for a direct replacement. You would have to convert the mounting styles.

i bought the trailmaster ssv shocks. they are for a 4" lifted ranger. the expanded and collapsed lengths were really close to the superlift shocks. they work for me.
