Dual. 30" tall tires should not need anything special. Get the oems and call it a day.

im sure you could run two different kinds of shocks but i wouldnt run two different shocks myself. different shocks=different performance etc. imo that is. im sure nothin bad would happen other than the shock with the most rebound would get more of a workout i suppose? im not sure abouth the dual shock hoops or having regular dual shock mounts but the hoops look nicer. thats all i can say about the hoops and that stuff. hope it helps lol

Valving is different between the shocks meant to be run single and those that are meant to be run dual. You DON'T want to run dual shocks that are valved to be installed as singles. Be sure you purchase specific shocks for what you want.

I think the reason for going with two is to combat heat build up when you are moving ALOT. I see no other reason. It looks silly. Yes two shock can fight each other. Two different valving styles for rebound and compression would act as one shock and have a completely different way of acting.
