north shore off road 604-988-7677 take the "main street exit" as your coming off the ironworkers bridge, take your first left at the lights, turn right on the street with "nicks auto body" on the corner

Jeep thrills 604-465-5559 hes in maple ridge.

went to the sport truck unlimited in surrey they are affiliated with nsor, was on the way to the ferries where i had to pick up the wife so it just made sence to go there. got a kickass deal but i have to exchange 2 of them as they gave me double loops instead of loops and pins not a big deal. just means i do the rears next week lol :) Thanx for pointing me in the right direction.

damn that loop to pin thing.
i made an adapter bracket thing for my truck out of some 2x2 hss i had lying around so i could use my old rear shocks in the front when i lifted it a little more.

had some one tell me it was sketchy, but i dont see how. the bolt going through the loop on the shock was the same size as the one on the bottom, and the one going to the shock mount was double the size of the pin on the old shocks

probably easier to just exchange them though

keep the dubble eyed shocks if you can. I made an adaptor. The pin style bushings get pounded out and there a pain it the ass if they are rusty when u take them apart. or run them.[cheers]

i think it maybe better to return it as its for a full size dodge truck or ramcharger, or at least thats what the part number comes up as on google.

yeah, the dodge front shocks will work in the front of a 4" lifted toyota, i used the same shocks in mine. And i use 6" lift f350 shocks in the rear
