Yeah....and bring on the rest of the Disco Truck...

With all that wheel travel I guess you need both of those shocks...

other than image issues, I just don't see a purpose for dual or tri-shocks up front... our fronts aren't that heavy and with the properly valved coilovers, u shouldn't have any suspension issues... but if you have the $, then get'r done! oh yeah, and post those pics too, so we can really hate...

I'm so sick of seeing big Chevys and Fords with generically valved dual Fox 2.0s I could puke. :gay: That's a lot of money to spend on a suspension that doesn't work any better than stock. A single custom valved 2.5 will out perform that all day long.....

Dual frt shocks are "so 30 minutes ago" :muncher:

Suspension technolgy has advanced, except for the "Disco" crowd that holds the more bling is better mentality...Funny part is that real hard core rock crawlers and such have switched to long travel single shock suspension awhile ago, same with "mud whamping", no need for 3 shocks per wheel to make the suspension work...

Most trucks that run dual shocks are either torsion bar or leaf springs. Since you already have a "coilover" it makes sence to just use bigger 2.5" shocks and use the proper spring. We sell remote res. front coilovers, have for almost 2 years. I can make just about any remote res 2.5" coilover works on the front of a Titan too. But dual 2.0 would be a lot of work and $$ for no benift in performance over a single 2.5". Now getting a single 3" coilover would be nice.

You can run the SAW's or DR's and get another 2-3" of lift over the spindle alone, the SAW's will require new upper control arms...

The price on PRGproducts.com is $1150 for DRE c.o. but I think the SAWs are around $100 or so less, but the PRG uppers A-arms, that the mid length SAWs require, are around $600, or $550 for TC brand.

I think PRG now has a stock application SAW though that like the DRE, doesn't need an aftermarket UCA. It is probably a little cheaper than the DRE too.

Those are all 2.5" race quality c.o., but for around $700 there's the Radflo 2" diameter body c.o. which also will also improve your suspension as well as lift, and they are a few hundred cheaper.
