Well in the process of removing my N-Fab steps which you can read about HERE, I noticed that one of the el-cheapo rear shocks that came with my Pro Comp Stage 1 lift kit was leaking fluid pretty bad. This is after only about 22k since install. I havn't been running shock boots, should I be???

Looks like I'll be ordering a new set of rears from Greg on Monday along with the TC shackles.

If your in a bind I could get you my PC shocks on the cheap. Otherwise my vote is for the Radflo 2" or 2.5" if you're feeling balla :) But I can't say anything bad about the Bilsteins that Greg sells I'm on my second set (one set before lift, one after lift) and love em.

I don't run boots on my Jeeps ranchos and they're okay..

That sucks, I asked how the procomps were treating people when i first got my kit. Most said they were okay. After seeing this, man am I glad i was able to return the procomp rear shocks back to 4whl parts, and got bilstiens from Greg. Love my bilstiens.

Problem solved. Ordered Bilsteins and the TC Shackles from Greg yesterday. Hopefully they will arrive in time to install this weekend!!!

Greg told me that DR doesn't make a shock long enough for my application, but he wished they did. Regardless he said the Bilsteins are still a great shock and should last forever.

Now if I can just save up some $$$ for Radflo's on the front end!!!

Unless things have changed, the shackles come unpainted. I would clean (I used a phosphate etcher), prime & paint the shackles before installing.

Yes, that is correct. I asked Greg about that yesterday because the picture that was on his site showed them in a "raw" finish. He told me that they would need to be painted.

Where can I get this phosphate etcher stuff? I don't want to be taking these back off a year from now to repaint them, so I'd like to do it right the first time.

I bought it at Home Depot. I can't remember what brand. The paint & primer was Rustoleum. There are several guys that are very good on the topic of automotive paint on this forum. Maybe somebody can advise.

Not sure, will check into it, can't hurt having a set of spares on hand.
