Shocks for full-size

I'm looking into setting up a much better system on a 1996 Bronco (currently running RS9000's [img]images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] ).

I'm interested in Bilstein 6100, 7100(remote) or Fox or Sway-A-Way remotes.

I will be adding longer, heimed radius arms and already has 4" lift springs. Everything else will stay stock. I want to greatly improve on-road handling (it's a bouncy mess right now) while building a decent and soft 10" or 12" travel setup for occasional off-road derbin'.

Question is, can I get away with one shock per wheel, or do I need to run duals, and what shock brand and valving setup is working well on full-sizes like 4WD F150s/Broncos?

Thanks for any input.

Id say single SAW 2.5s would be the way to go.

Re: Shocks for full-size

I see you run single 2.5" SAW's on your 'yota. Is it stiff or are yours valved lighter than what I would use?

Nevermind, just re-read you're running coil-overs. Different ball-game.

Thanks for the help.

I would just call Autofab or Camburg and talk to them about it. I"m sure they would be more then happy to answer your questions, plus they have the knowledge on valving.

Re: Shocks for full-size

That's a great idea...I have emailed them for info on their parts, and they've been helpful. Hadn't thought about asking them about shock info.
