Shocks and pitman arm

I am in the process of buying a set of used 3 inch lift springs. I searched and read the posts on shocks and would like an up to date critique of cheap shocks. I would like to find out what inexpensive shocks are being used and part numbers from the big four parts houses. I also would like to find a used drop pitman or z link. If you have one I am ready for immediate purchase.

Re: Shocks and pitman arm

The thing about shocks is you need to find what size you need your self and then any cheap shock that meets your size and mounting requirement will work. We can't tell you what you need without knowing what your full compression length and extention length is.

Re: Shocks and pitman arm

Just go to pepboys or something and tell them what you want. That's what I did in 92 I think they where from a Bronco or BroncoII. I told them I needed a stock shock but 3" longer, Most of those guys are stupid so you have to talk there lango.

Re: Shocks and pitman arm

I was under the impression that a 3 inch spring lift was fairly common and someone out there in zookdom would have an answer for me. I dont about where you live but the high school kids at the local parts houses would not be able to help me. Ive tried, if they cant pull it up on the computer it doesnt exist.

Re: Shocks and pitman arm

You have to ask for the book behind the counter. Inside they have pages of shocks and you can select which one you need. The reason I said you need to measure is because there are very few standard things about lifting a Samurai. People do all kinds of different types of things when it comes to shock mount locations. Do you have the stock locations or did you make special ones? Did you use the ones from you lift kit provider? How are you doing the rear? Are they angled? You see there is alot to know. My best advice is to measure.
