Truck lift
« on: September 29, 2014, 06:00:36 AM »

I built a lift kit at home from scrap parts. Now I need shocks. I don't know how much I lifted it because I didn't measure it first. How do I find proper shocks for it?? It's a cheap build so I won't be going bilstein or super expensive. Monroe prob. Thanks

Check the Monroe website and look for what is recommended for your truck.  Then look on sites such as Rockauto.com and search for the shocks the Monroe people recommend.  RA.com is a good, cheap internet source for good parts.

I lifted my 03 ram in the front and had to make extenders.  But mine are stud by eye,  I think yours are eye by eye,  You can call Justsuspensions too.  They deal in this special stuff.
