The shorter ones goes behind the coil if I remember right..

Now another question for you guys..

Which shock do you keep? The one in front or in back of the coil? Trying to decide what's going to be more work for me on the SAS.. :toothless
Back one, the mounts are more durable.

I searched a bit for the same question, Spectre, before my lift... It seems the consensus was to keep the rear shock if only using 1 of the 2, but that it wouldn't make much noticeable difference if you kept the front one instead.

I just kept the longer, rear shock, and it rides much smoother now...

Thanks for all the imput! I wasn't sure if the dual shocks would help the offroad use or not. When it comes time for a lift looks like I'll save some $$ for two less shocks.

If you run your rig like a pre-runner duals are, in theory, superior. Should be less cumulative fade as the shock/s heat up from extended, high frequency rebound. That's how I run my rig but I can't say I've noticed any difference compared to the single shock rigs I've driven over the same routes...

My '88 came factory with quads and a sway bar up front. Should be able to find some brackets in a local JY.

there are drop brackets for the front sway bars when you go this route that should be available thru the lift company you choose.
