    well I have been debating on getting new shocks or not, but I was getting a little too crazy 4 wheeling the other day and did this.
    My question is though is how long will Ill be able to drive around like this, its gonna take me a few days to get new shocks ordered and on and I drive to and from work all week. Also I can only afford new rear shocks at the moment, Ill be fine to put some Bilstien 5160's on with stock front correct?

    You can drive without shocks forever if you want to. It's just gonna be a little jittery.

    Did you actually break the shock? Or is the plastic cover just messed up? If it's just the cover, cut it off, you don't need it if you're ordering new shocks soon.

    Remove the shock so that it doesn't damage the wheel and keep on driving until you get a replacement.

    Im at stock height right now, I just ordered the bilstien 5100 set front and rear from downsouth motosports.

    Im not an expect on shocks but the metal rod pierced the plastic, im not too sure if its bent or not, ill have to tear of the plastic to see.

    Almost looks like the shaft got hot enough that it melted the plastic as the plastic got bunched up, somehow.

    Hmm. On my monitor it looked like the rod broke and was sticking out... but now that I look closer it does look like things melted or something.
