put new shocks on the truck today.

Finally got around to replacing the worn-out/leaking/rusting BDS shocks on my truck. Switched the front mount to a FAB TECH dual mount shock hoop kit, and Bilstein 5125 shocks. Rides like brand new truck!!!

What i started with.





Everything removed







Since i was switching to the dual shock mount i had to put the factory lower shock mount back on, while i was at it i put new U-bolts on as well.





Finished product




2000 F350 DRW
6" Lift
Nitto terra grapplers 315/75/16
4" diamond eye straight pipe
SCT programmer
Bilstein Dual shocks front/Singles Rear
custom paint
more to come...
