I know, i know...the first thing everyone's gonna post is "SEARCH!!
" but i can't remember who's got a setup like mine (besides Blaze) so i'll just ask y'all to bear with me and re-type the info.
I know how to measure for shocks, that's not difficult. The problem is that i have such a tight schedule, that by the time i get everything assembled, it'll be too late to order shocks and get them delivered before I have to leave for R.I.T.S. I need to put the order in now and have them waiting to be installed when i get to that step of the buildup.
I'm running a '79 D44 with stock '79 upper & lower coil mounts. I've got '79 6" Skyjacker coil springs and B&T radius arm extentions (if they matter). The upper shock mounts are the mid-90's F250/F350 style (with an eye-bolt). Lower mounts will be the stock '79 style and both are behind the coil.
Y'all can see that my setup is not exotic by any means...
Can anyone with a similar set up give me an approximate extended/compressed length, or even better a part # ? I really don't care what shocks I run, as long as i have a set up there for the drive to Arkansas.
If they're horrible, then i'll change them when i get back...
