Mmm, big shocks



Thats 42" of shock right there :thumb:

I will be running tripple rates but for setup purposes I will be running a single 250 pound coil on each shock so I can determine the sprung weight of each corner then order the other 2 springs and 2 tenders. I just mounted both coils to one shock to see how cool it will look :thumb:

Re: Mmm, big shocks

There have been some big plans made now involving both projects but I cannot divulge any information until around February [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] Basically because I don't know if it's going to happen or not till then...

Re: Mmm, big shocks

Looks like you will be doing a lot more stroking than than any of us [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Sweet shocks though. I work with a buddy that wants to chop a hole in the bed of his Tacoma and run those shocks with hoops.
