Well this morning on the way to work I hit a big bump, and blew the right front shock. Over the weekend I added some spacers because I cranked my t-bars to level the front up. Can I drive it like this, or is this putting to much stress on the t-bars? I called this shop today and the guy was pretty helpful and helped me find some replacement rancho's. He did some research and they have one that is used on the 2wd model with a 4"lift. He said that it should work, what do you guys think? When I cranked the t-bars, I got 3" in the front, so I am thinking I should be ok.

Added some spacers?

No shock will be more adverse to handling the system components.

I have opened up a shock eye before hitting a huge bump. :eek:

I blew one on speed bumps. IFS is way too harsh. I went to the 2 inch longer bilsteins and still feel like I am walking on glass.

Yeah, I got 10 turns on the bolts. After measuring before and after, thats what I got. It leveled the truck perfectly, but not such a perfect ride. So anyways I got the new rancho 5000's, they seem to help alot.
