You can usually get a discount if you buy all four shocks together (like the buy three get the fourth free at 4 wheel parts)


These are the numbers on the shocks themselves!!!

Okay here is a little tid bit for anyone who plans on doing the front Ranchos with the AC lift themselves. (or just the AC lift) Everything went fine, got the struts out and compressed the coils and got them off just fine with a tool that I bought from Autozone. When my frined and I tried to compress the AC coil to put on the new shocks... We nearly broke the tool :angryfire: I am going to have a shop put the coils on the new shock and i HIGHLY RECOMMEND that everyone else do the same. It is way to hard to do that part yourself!! Everything else is pretty easy! So hopefully the sexterra will be up and running tommorow night. :ky:

Are there numbers on the knob, or just notches?

What I did with the strange adjustables on my car is marked the street and track settings so it's quick and easy to look at the knob and change the setting.

looks great!

one question though. are the ac coil springs designed to bow out like that or should i get my eyes checked? i held a straight edge to the spring and it seems like the middle bows out more. could be the shadow in the pic since they were taken at night with a flash.

Its an optical illusion. After I posted that picture i thought the same thing and I had to go out and recheck just to make sure. Thanks for the comments and concern though.

Do they provide any extra travel over the stock shock or are they just for a more comfortable ride?

They are the exact same size and spec (front shocks) as the stock ones, they just provide a better ride.
