Hi everyone, have a bit of money from my tax return and although I am saving for house I want to get a set of tows and probably replace all my suspension. Noticing more now that it rides like a tank cranked up so I would like to:

A. Replace front struts - Bilsteins unless I can get correct sized and adaptered Fox resis

B. Replace rear blocks with 3"

C. Replace rear shocks with 2" longer than stock Bilsteins or Fox non-resi


Lots of salt up here in Ontario Canada so chrome wouldn't be the best idea but if that's all there is, then whatever.

Can you get 2" longer than stock Bilsteins/Foxs?

Thanks guys.

PS: Is ShockWharehouse.com the best prices on shocks?

Here is a set of F&R Bilsteins for $379 OBO with free ship on eBay... is this the best idea? I would like some resi's for up front (go ahead and hate haha) but can't find anything that will bolt up.

We have massive amounts of salt here as well and the zinc coated bilsteins hold up very well. I'm actually going to run them for winter so I don't destroy my Kings and Foxes. 4wheel parts has a few deals where you can get like 4 shocks for $100(procomp). You could always run the Foxes then throw on a cheap set of shocks for winter.

FYI not sure if it makes a difference or not but the Fox standard rear shocks you list are for 1500HDs. Also fox makes adjustable replacement front coilovers that bolt in just like oem, a couple companies make them king, sway-away, fox, and icon are all I can think of at the moment. They are ridiculously expensive like $1200 to $1600 a pair. Also you could look at the rancho quick lifts that reuse the stock coils.
