Hey guys, recently picked up another 1st gen(94 4dr). About 15 years ago I had a 91 explorer as my first car. Built it up pretty good. Well this time I'm going for more of a mid travel 4x4 build prerunner type.

I'm looking into coils and shocks. Any recommendations?

Thanks guys

While I wouldn't call my build a pre runner I grafted in the generic F350 front shock mounts into my front coil mounts lets you run quite a bit longer front shock. Gen 1 version 2.0 build

for the price i paid on sale, couldnt be happier w my rancho rs5k, but have also liked bilstien and kyb in past
