I'm not running dual shocks on my '01 dually, but I have searched around for them.

One of the kits I saw that caught my eye is the BDS suspension kit.

The link below takes you to a 4" lift kit for 99-04 f350's, And judging by the fact that it gives you an option for dual shocks on both front and/or rear, it must come with the necessary bracket. I think there are other kits for different years on the website, just search around a bit to find what you are looking for.

Good luck!

Don't know about the OP, but I have 35's on mine with 2" spacers in the rear. I also have airbags installed for towing and such, but I like the look of the dual shocks(looks can be important too!).

I am most likely NOT going to get duals for the rear/front for the time being, but I am not taking it off the table just yet. My front/rear shocks are still stock from 2001...so it might be time to swap them out

duals are valved to be duals unless you want a double harsh ride best other option is run the Ranch 9000,s so you can adjust

we used to have trucks running around with multiple shocks ( 4-5 per wheel) and they would drill them so they were not damping at all LOL

I wouldn't look super hard for dual brackets since I would just use the metal glue gun
to attach them ;-)

haha well then that's pretty funny

With the 01' dually and her leaf springs in the front and rear..the ride is not nearly as cushy as some other models. That, and my shocks haven't been replaced since they rolled out of the factory 13 years ago(at least that is what I would assume, they look stock as can be).

@ the OP, If you want the look of dual shocks, it shouldn't be too difficult to google them.

If you want duals for added suspension, then I would do as ZMANN said and get singles that are adjustable.
