Stock Shock list for lifts
Here is a list I made when I was picking out shocks for my home brew lift. Putting it down on paper really helped me pick the right shocks for me so I hope it can help some one else.
I used air shocks front and rear, mostly because of cost and so I could level the back easily. But I listed regular shocks, coil overs, and air shocks. the air shocks only cost about $15 more / pair than cheep monroe shocks. I added part numbers so you can check with your local parts store.
Most of these will need some fab. Nothing too hard, mostly pressing out/in cross pins. the ford explorer and buick shocks already have pins but I can tell you that the buick shocks need to have the cross pins drilled out or ground to make them fit.
