Shocks Opinions
 
Have a '53 with 3" lowered axle with 3" leaf pack in front, out back on the rear have a 6" mono leaf.

Looking to replace worn out older shocks, does anyone have any recommendations of good performance shocks for these trucks with running straight axles.


Thank you

I'd just go with my favorite brand with a gas shock that wasn't too stiff. Main thing is don't go with too stiff aka heavy duty of a shock. I worked in a Firestone store in the early 70's and had to pull more than on set of Monroe Magnums off (those big fat yellow ones) because they rode too stiff for a lot of people who didn't need them anyhow.
