I need a quick response for a shock question please.

I currently have a f350 that has 13 in of suspension lift, but the guy who i got it from didn't have rear shocks. I found a pair of stock 350 shocks on Craigslist and i was wondering if they would work, the mounts for the rear shocks don't look to far apart and look like it would accommodate the shocks well. Any input guys??

No, i dont believe so. you need to buy shocks based on your lift height.

Definitely get a dual stabilizer, that should be your top priority if your daily driving that thing, especially on the highway. i'm not a fan of rough country though.

yes, but not from rough country. Their brackets are nice, but the shocks included with the kit are pathetic. I had one blow out as I was backing out of the driveway in 10degree weather, they weren't even 6 months old

You need to measure eye to eye and find a shock that will sit in the middle of its travel at rest.

You could articulate it to measure actual droop and up travel but let's be honest, a superduty with 13 inches of lift isn't going to have much travel and won't see much off road action.

A stock shock may fit but you will have little to no down travel (droop) and you will quickly kill the shock.
