what size tires you running? double shocks are probably not necessary... might even stiffen your ride too much and make it worse.

I also doubt the need for double shocks. Just take up space. Use a good adjustable shock such as the Rancho 9000 to increase or decrease the stiffness. Crank them up and they should plenty stiff, even for a SOA.

Good Luck

what kinf of whellin r u planning?
multi shocks are for baja style (fast desert racing) and mall croozers.
if your rock crawlin shocks do absolutely nothing except possible inhibit your flex.

I have no rear shocks period and the only reason I have them in front is cus I drive my rig daily.
