Looking to get double shocks on the back of my 03 2wd......Where do I get the mounts? And what exactly do I need to make double shocks work?

FTS has a dual rear setup, along with CST. Pull up Mauro's thread with pics of his new truck. He is running FTS's dual rear shock setup and it looks great.

You could always be like other people that just have to have the dual shock look. Run 4 shocks but only 2 actually work. The other 2 just have holes drilled in them. Not that I agree with this idea but at least your ride will be the same.

MX-6 remote rezzi's. That'd be just right. That way you could turn them down to have a soft ride.

in a 1500 the ride is only going to get worse. u can put teh shocks back there and have no air in them. or u can just not spend the money and have a smoother ride

Yep, people run them primarily just for looks. I actually prefer a stiffer/more controlled ride, so I wouldn't mind them. I suspect that they would give a truck a better "feel" when towing or hauling heavy loads. Offroad, they won't fade as quickly... but the average daily driver or offroader doesn't have to worry about fading a single shock setup... so... yeah, they're not really needed.

It's kind of the same principle for running dual front shocks or reservoir shocks. Nobody really needs them, but they look pretty. If I had the money, I'd run a setup like Mauro's... just because it looks BA. However, I am poor, which is why I drive a stock 2wd. :cry:

didnt you used to have a lifted ride or no?

Im defintely getting the double shocks upfront, once I change over to the cognito lift
