This weekend I was planning on doing a torsion bar crank to level out and installing a set of rough country shocks. I'm pretty sure I've got the t-bar thing convered, but I'm a little unsure of the shocks. I think I can figure it out but if anyone has any good advice, pointers, or even a thread with instructions, anything would be helpful.

I have a set of Bilstein BE5-2550-H1 rear shocks for sale which are a direct replacements for the rear that I used for about two weeks all on highway . The mates for the fronts are Bilstein BE5-6928-H6 or HO ( I can`t read my own writing but I think H6 ) . I`ll sell ya the set of rears for $100.00 plus S&H you`ll have to hunt up a pair of fronts which is easy enough .These shocks are said to be for 0-2" lift .

I would get longer front shocks as I believe I bottom out the front shocks. I am not sure about the part number, but a search may bring it up. I got mine (front and rear) brand new for 240 shipped....do some shopping around.

Any one have any advice on the actual install of the shocks, or maybe areas where they might have ran into problems.

pretty easy, front being the easiet, just make sure ya put an allen wrench in the while on top of the shock to keep it froom moving, when undoing the nut.

Ok now i have run into real trouble. JC whitney sent me a set of tuff country shocks, that they claimed were for my 2002 4x4 ram 1500 with 2" of lift (in the front). They definately didn't fit. When i called them they said they did'nt carry the shock i needed. Than I called top gun customz and got a very similar response. They only had shocks for a 0-1" lift and a 4-6" lift. Can somebody help me out and let me know what shocks i should get and where to get them from. I don't really care who makes the shocks i just want them to fit.
