Shock recommendations


Recommended Posts

Going to be installing a 3in lift in the front and then some Chevy drop shackles in the rear along with new leaf springs. Wondering if anyone has any recommendations for shocks? Heard mixed reviews with the rough country ones. Not looking to break the bank... max budget probably 200$ for the shocks. Thanks guys and gals!

$200 for all of them?

 

The only thing I can think of that might be worth it is looking into if you can use JK takeoffs and hitting the buy and sells to see if you can get some nearly new ones for dirt cheap.  Honestly, JK takeoff stuff has largely dried up since they don't make JKs anymore, but some is still out there.

 

Otherwise I'd say use the Monroe sizing chart and buy whatever will fit off Rockauto.  You can cross reference the P/N back to application there to get an idea of what valving you're going to get, IE shocks for a F-350 might be a little stiffer than what you want.
