Shock Help

Ok guys so here is my situation right now. I purchased some shocks from summit thinking they were the right ones through some seaches and what they told me from summit.

Got the wrong ones and need some help finding the correct ones.

Here is a picture of one of the shocks I got from summit. Remember I got these to replace my dual stabilizer set up because ones is busted. I am holding it up here to compare it to the stock stabilizer.


here is the part number of the shock


here is a crappy picture of the dual set up


Anyone know where I can get a pair of shocks for my dual set up?

Your shocks look like what should be used for the shocks that control the springs on the truck and I am betting that Summit Racing was under this impression as well and not even thinking that your intention was to use them for steering stabilizers. You need to look at steering stabilizer shocks for your truck (replacement ones for the stock one and your aftermarket one, may be the same and may not IDK) and not suspension shocks. They are not the same and serve two separate purposes. Hope this helps.

Summit says the one they sent me is used for replacement of the stock steering stabilizer.

They just look super long compared to whats on there now.

I just need to find some to replace my dual set up

Well I do not know of any dual stearing stabilizers that are stock... Most are aftermarket, and I know with mine I had to get a whole new setup. But take one off messure it and look at procomp or Rancho for them. Most likely will fit fine.

That's the right one. It looks off because of the boot. If you take the boot off it looks the same. It's not compressed all the way with the band from the factory on there. I can double check my part number tomorrow but I did the same thing and threw a fit when I got mine thinking they sent the wrong one

Let us know how it feels driving after you swap it I am about to do the same to mine. Does it tighten the steering up at all?

I put one on my 05 and one on our 04 f450. Mine it didn't feel any different but the 04 it did wonders for. Especially when we have a heavy load and alot of weight on the rear wheels and on the highway it was scary to drive with weight. Now it feels so much better. Well worth it for our 04, 05 not really

I think I was at shockwarehouse.com and saw the 5100 series for steering stabilizers on there if that is the brand you're looking for.
