    Hey i finaly got my 3"bod lift, rear locker and 33x10.5x15's on order for my 91x eddy. however my current shocks are a little toooo soft (the are only 6 months old).
    the damb thing bounces too much when going over rocky/rough terrain :mad:
    and no i am not going to fast because if i was going any slower i would be in reverse. LOL :eek:
    i am useing "monroe reflex truck shocks"
    is there ANY way to get into a dual shock system? :cool:
    what do you guys recomend

    or get some better shocks designed for what you want rather than a cushy pavement ride. Bilstiens are awesome. You get what you pay for, check out the 7100's ;)

    I don't think dual shocks are necessary unless thats what your looking for, old man emu shocks are great for offroad on onroad use, really stiff, rides kinda like a truck, kinda expensive though, I love mine ;)

    OME struts for the Suzuki sidekick are superb too, so thats probably a good choice...
