Trick on the front shocks. Sawzall the tops off. Cleaner, simpler and a heck of a lot faster.

Right in the middle, where all the gas is. Just wear a mask.

J/K. I'd think you just sawzall the very top tip where it attaches to the mount, then jut slide it out.
Not the way I do things personally, but it'd work.


With 200+ Billion electrical parts, the world most complicated machine is inside your own skull.

Question Reality.

I recommend the Doetsch Tech Pre-runners or OME. Stay away from the Rancho 5000.


I'm running these too (Doetsch tec prerunners), they are good.

Trashcanman, keep in mind if you ever want to for example run ball joint spacers the Bilsteins will have to be shimmed. Bisltien doesn't make a long enough shock for any kind of lift other than a 4" bracket lift or higher.

X3 on the Doetsch pre runner shocks. Valving is excellent and they have built-in bumpstops. Price is nice too. Check em' out, bottom of the page:
