Swapping shocks.....

So dont hate me because I didnt read through all of the posts, but If I have a 6" lift on my truck, can I just go to my shop and order shocks? Or do they have to be special order etc...?? I'm thinking just ranchos...nothing too pricey...


Thanks in advance!

Not sure if you found your answer or not. You will have to find out which shocks work for a 6" lift. If your shop has them in stock, you can buy them, or order them online. If you have some kind of orr-road shop, I imagine they might have them in stock
