Need some cheap Loooooong shocks

Need to throw some el cheapo el shockos on the truck for a while since I'm broker than broke and can't get the good ones yet[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. Any companies besides rancho make some long shocks? I like the 14.99 ones at pepgirls but there only 14" long[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img].

Hmm, thats a good price. I'll have to measure how long I need front and rear and see what I can come up with.

Re: Need some cheap Loooooong shocks

jason, have you lowered the mounts at all? it doesnt look like you can compress very far so there's no reason to pay big bucks for a shock with 40" of travel just because your mounts are so far apart [img]images/icons/laugh.gif[/img] let me know if you find something though, i've never liked these ranchos and i need shocks bad but dont know who carries cheap shocks for lifted trucks.

Re: Need some cheap Loooooong shocks

Yeah, I don't like Ranchos and won't be running those. Someday I'll just go with some Bilstein 5100 or 7100's in the front. Thats why I'm looking for something cheap right now since they won't be in for more than 6 months. I went for a drive tonight and when I looked like a teeter totter going down the road with no shocks[img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img].
