March 10, 2008I love rancho shocks.. Id get the best you can afford, that dont have the adjustment knob..
March 11, 2008Id personally get bilstein 5100s if i were in your shoes. If they are a bit too much, id just get any old white body.
March 12, 2008I'm really happy with my Trailmaster SSV's. They made a big difference over my old white bodies and I have less body roll in the corners....and this is with no swaybars.
March 12, 2008how much did u pay for those fabbed? and this is kinda offtopic, but is it a bad idea to run without the sway bar on a daily driver? my jeep had no swaybar on the front (it was supposed to) and it was all over the road and it was tippy, but that was with worn out springs and a bad stabilizer shock thing
March 12, 2008Shocks were about 35 a piece. I haven't noiteced a huge difference without my swaybar, I can't take corners at 60mph but this thing is so big I wouldn't want to. Disconnect yours and see what you think.
March 12, 200835 each aint bad, and ill try the sway bar, no point in goin fast with this thing anyway, it will, but i dont do it much.
biggreen, how much are the bilsteins? i hear they are expensive
March 12, 2008Thay are fery exp but worth it. I ran my 79 bronco with out sway bar it was ok. How Far are you from Glens falls that is whare I grew up.
March 12, 2008Ok whare are you at I looked at some of the other sites and the towns are different. I know about whare your at my sister lives in chester town.
March 12, 2008glens falls is like 30 miles south from me. i actually lived in chestertown since i was born, its like 15 miles from north creek. who is your sister? i may know her, since i lived there so long.
March 15, 2008i second the trailmaster SSVs, had them on my stepside and they were badass, rode like a caddy! well, a lifted truck version.
