Re: SHOCKS!!

I'm running Monroes on the front of my SPOA. I paid around $25 for the 2 incuding tax. I like the ride. I've been on all types of terrain with them and they've done better than I expected.

I just took my shock measurements to Advanced Auto and asked to look through their shock catolog. I found I close match and asked them to order them for me. They had them the next day.

Re: SHOCKS!!

I FUGURED THEY WOULD RIDE NICE ACCOUNTING FOR THE FACT THAT THE SAMURUI IS A VERY LIGHT VEHICLE!

P.S. WHEN YOU DO A SPOA LIFT YOUR SHOCKS AND SPRINGS BOTH GO TO THE TOP OF THE AXLE(RIGHT?)SO DO WOULD I GET THE SAME RESULTS AS GETTING NEW SHOCKS?
