aight fellas im trying to order some doestch tech/summit sport shocks. I am going to be installing the MCG 5-7 kit and possibly giving the front coils a little trim if necessary to give me 6". What size shocks would be sufficient for this application. Also what would be the most effective way to gain another inch out back with a flip and shackles. The truck is an 02 RCSB - Thanks

flip kit, shackles and 1" block will give you 9" of drop. As for shocks you can buy my rears :D

I might just go off of your part numbers because I want to have everything at once. If im going to be at the same height drop wise I think ill be safe. Did they travel ok and were just too stiff or were they an incorrect size? What did you use up front?

They were too stiff for my liking :imo

I have helper bags so i dont need a stiff shock since i dont have a problem bottoming out. If you plan to do an 8" drop i'd deffinatly consider helper bags.

My truck is 4x4 so the shocks I have up front are different. I am running monroe sensatracs all the way around now.

I have some summit shocks that were on my truck with an 8" drop that I'll sell for $30 plus shipping for the rears.

Honestly, if you have the cash I would get a set of resi shocks. You can get fox's for about $200 a shock. PM me if you're interested in either set.

If I stay this low static I will definitely be investing in resi shocks, as for now I believe the summits will cut it.

I read your posts in the summit shock thread and saw that you disliked them along with spanky. I dont mind a more stiff ride and have heard plenty of good things about them as well. I appreciate your opinion, just dont have the money to spend $200.00 a shock, so its these or stock :(. Non of NORCALSS's summit links work anymore would you happen to know the answer to my question above?
