Question:

 

Need a Replacement front shocks for my f150 4 wheel

drive with 2 inches of suspension lift. The shocks in front of the springs

seem to need to be a smaller dia than the shocks after the springs. thank

you?

 

Answers:

 

There is no real control over the diameter of the shocks.

Note that monotube performance shocks (such as Bilstein, Edelbrock, and

KYBs) have a slimmer body because they don't have aeration problems like a twin tube, and don't need a large oil reservoir.

Since you have raised the truck, you probably have a larger tire, so you need a shock with a lot of dampeing power. That's going to be a monotube.

Does the modification / lift kit company say you have to use a longer shock?

Or are you using a stock length shock?
