superlift white shocks....

Mine are toast. I searched to see if anyone has found anything else that works, not much comes up, just people asking the same thing.


Did anyone find another shock that will work a superlifted ranger yet? I really want to avoid superlift replacements, but also dont feel like welding up mounts. I would ranger just bolt something in. (or have something mostly bolt in)


So if anyone knows anything, help me out haha.

The only shocks that are bolt-on are the Superlift shocks.

Might be worth giving a call to bilstein, the new 5160s are pin top and have bushing mounts on the bottom, just need to see if there is a shock the right length.

Slightly shorter to compensate for.....

And press in the lower mount unit, and use one of these Jeep upper shock conversion things(from Rusty's)(and because those shocks are eye to eye.)...

see thats what i am thinking, somthign along those lines, now its just a matter of the right length and valving.

I was wondering about using a lifted shock for an older ranger (TTB), that would be the right length, but the valving would be off I would think. (since the suspension design has less leverage on them than our SLA, it would probably be too soft)


oh mike- i got a fox coil on my parker now- i was hanging with 8" DH bikes the other weekend. (the downhillers probably just couldnt ride haha)
