    The brown truck stopped by today dropping off some goodies.
    my doestch spindles along with fat bobs rear shackle and front poly spacer lift have arrived!!

    I have 2 remaining questions.

    1.) Should I get new shocks all the way around to accommodate the lift? and if so What kind but more importantly what size?

    2.) Could I do a combination of an aal and the shackles from fat bob?

    I have searched the forum and cannot find much information about shocks and 5 lugs. ( If its not clear already I am a noob).

    I will be posting pictures once its all said and done.

    Front shocks the stock length will do fine. Rear shocks are a little harder to choose. the ride will be noticably rougher with the aal and most aftermarket shocks make the ride worse. If you do a combo of both aal and shackles it will sit stupid tall in the rear. I ran the pro comp es3000 shocks for a while. Ride was decent but were too short for my needs. I have a set i can swap for new ones for a decent price pm me if your interested
