There have been a couple threads on dual shocking Tim. Plus landshark just updated his SAS build....finally got his single bilstein's dialed in with a MUCH stiffer setting and he says it's now way more stable. I can tell you with my truck, the dual shocks were the answer, just no need for swaybar now.

My truck already has the dual duff shocks in a cage hoop, was wondering if some bilsteins would help. I have also been holsing on to a pair of superlift springs that have a much higher spring rate. I dont use the '89 for wheelin anymore, he is for some occasional sand, and just lookin good.

try pulling a shock and seeing how stiff it is with rebound and compression.

No more deep mud holes up at Wenatchee, eh?

Pulling the shim stack gave me 365/100 (Approx), if i had to reorder all over again i would get 365/110 but honestly its drives really nice now on the street and less bounce on the trail..

Not sure how much weight you have up front with that motor but i assume my truck is near 3200lbs on the front with the bumper, winch, battery etc.. but i only have a little 302..

hope it helps.. I know you have duals up front.. so sure you could just add one set and dial them in..

Whats the valving on the Ranchos? I like the bilsteins because of how stiff they are, altho i dont have a set (yet) so i cant comment on how they perform.

I have dual 255/70 5150's up front and I think they handle fine on the road, I get a little body roll when I turn sharper turns at higher speeds. I tend to keep it a little slower now than when I had the ttb but all in all I like them. I think having singles up front might not be enough for what you are wanting it to cure.

Yep, worked plenty well all these years. You still have your 89 don't you Tim? Hope all is going well with you. I'm flying in next couple weeks, parents home in Salem is being sold and I'm moving them out here. My dad isn't doing well, Dementia that is getting bad.

Yes still have the '89, don't drive it much as my commute is like 70 miles a day and the brakes have been sticking on.

Also have the '78 and the '91

Sorry to hear about your dad, will be nice to have him close. I spent as much time as possible with mine in his last couple years.
