Have you added any leaves to the springs? Shock dampening is very much related to spring rate. If you add leaves (increase the spring rate), it might be a good idea to look in to adding shocks, on the other hand, if you have the stock spring rate then I would think the stock number of shocks should sufise.

alrighty..axle is empty..now..


what all i gotta do to mount..i know i gotta move the spring perches..and i think the shock mounts..so the best way to do that is to measure on my axle and move em..i got a spair set of perches in the garage all ill need to do is get shock mounts or to fab up something
