This product was readily available,did actually fit,but seems too soft for a 4x4 truck especially with an empty bed.If you are looking for a more solid road feel and better handling,opt for the shock that is more heavy duty in nature.This product would be better suited to the 2wd versions.Price was my main reason for selecting this product

          Rears fit fine. Fronts had to be modified to use existing bolts on lower end. Just cut a slot with hacksaw and they too fit well.

          • Q:

            how do i get the rustr bolt off without breaking it?
            Asked on 5/27/2012 by Anonymous

            1 answer

            • CUSTOMER CARE

              A:

              Heat the area around the bolt head with a propane torch. Do not let the head of the bolt glow red, but if it starts to turn slightly red, this is OK. Expand the area around the bolt to make it easier to remove it. Shut off the torch and immediately spray the area around the bolt head, along with the head itself, with lubricating oil. This will cause the oil to immediately smoke, so do not inhale the fumes. The oil will seep down behind the bolt head and work to loosen the rust on the threads of the bolt. Wait 15 to 20 minutes for the penetrating oil to finish working on the rust.Remove the bolt with a socket wrench and the appropriate-sized socket. Turn the bolt counterclockwise to remove.
