Shocks are in!!!

by on Jan.11, 2009, under Wheeling

My bushings arrived from Amazon yesterday and I was able to put them in today.  I removed all of the heim joints and pressed in the bushings using a c-clamp, a piece of wood and a large socket. 


 I ended up tossing in some 3/4″ washers to offset the shocks a bit to help prevent the leaf springs from hitting the shock bodies.  I’ll try to cycle the suspension to see if it is really necessary.

Took the truck for a test drive and it seemed to handle well.   Can’t wait to put them to the offroading test soon!
