suspension set up

Post  DICKY on Wed May 13, 2009 10:19 pm

after lifting my truck yesterday it is very soft i can shake the truck very easy.i no that i have not replaced the shocks yet but i was waiting untill the body lift is done before spending money on shocks. what i am needing is suitable rear set up that is going to eliminate most of the body roll i was thinking of duel set up with 4 shocks across the back i no i will have to custom make it from scratch and replace the front with a coil over shock as the frontera has not much room at the front. i was even thinking about replacing the rear end shocks all together and fitting in a gas strut with a coil spring from the front end of vectra or similar. has any one attempted this before this before or similar looking for pointers here

i have been looking at a few yank sites to see how they deal with it as most of them run leaf spring rear ends on older trucks and some of them have 10" to 14"lifts done on them mad .for articulation i need a long shock so i can fit a double extending rear shackle and i think i have a good idea on how to mount longer shocks i did find a web site that i can get shocks from but its in yank land so i will have to see how much shipping is first

i have found that superlift.com has a ebay account that sells off stock that has a scratch or a small dent but is covered with superlifts full warranty its called{ scratch and dent }it sells at 70% discount its worth a look they even give you all the speck on the things you want to buy . Laughing
