    hello all!

    I've stumbled upon a video about a lowered truck using spring assisted shocks (AC Delco) up front from an S10 that bolts right in. tried looking for any info on this to no avail. anyone else done this?

    Dont think anyone has done it up front like that dude did. Tbh tho, the front shock mount isnt meant to hold the weight of the front end of the truck

    this is what i did, Monroe shock with a small coil.... great when loaded down or off road, but way too much springiness for every day driving.

    this truck isn't young to be my daily so I'm good with stiff suspension. i talked to the guy with that setup and he informed me what to get and what to expect. getting ready to drop my truck that I've had for about a week now. i recently sealed the 235/60R15s for 205/50. looks like I'm about to cruise East LA right now LOL!
