Re: can i use stock shocks

only kind of lift you can use stock shocks is with SPOA and thats cause you flip the spring plate over and switch the sides with them...longer brake lines wouldnt be to bad an idea and a drop pitman would help or Z-link..why not just go SPOA

Re: can i use stock shocks

Dunno if the shocks are gonna reach but they suck so bad its worht getting new ones. Is it worth getting new 3 inch spings or just doing a spring over axle and getting 4.5 inches? Many toyota and honda brake lines fit the samurai and can be found in super long lnegths

The stock springs will not not quite reach with 3 inch lift springs. Gabriel Red Ryders are about $10 each at Autozone if interested in some inexpensive shocks. You can do a search here for the right part numbers.
