dual shocks up front?

I just replaced my rear shocks and my fronts are ready next. I have a dual shock set up in the front. A friends 2000 f350 does not. Why is mine like that? come factory? I assume i just buy 4 front shocks, or can i change to 1? thanks

That is not factory. And on an unrelated note, where did you get those inserts for your chrome grill?

they inserts came with the grill. I got it off of ebay when i did my 05 front end.

Any idea why you would upgrade to dual shocks?

Mainly the bling factor on a street truck. If you want to go back to a single we have stock hangers. If you want to keep duals we can get you correctly valved Bilsteins.

a lot of people also use the dual shock set up on lifted trucks i believe its actually supposed to smooth out the ride a little bit with thicker springs etc
