Re: 81 Chevy K10 ShortBed

Well about a year ago I ordered bilstein shocks from a online company waited about 2 months with no update on when they will be made so I cancelled. I ordered up some procomp mx6 adjustable shocks rides a lot better than the rancho 5000 series. I have the front at the softest setting and the rear at 1 up from the softest.
I miss the looks from the quadshocks but the ride is flat out terrible.... likes to knock electrical components loose it happened to me a couple of times lol.

The PO had the lift put on in 1999 so the shocks were shot. I think I am going to replace the rear springs with Tuff Countries ez ride pack.

some not so great pictures



Also before someone asks, yes the shocks are mounted in the correct orientation, it says in the instruction to mount them with the adjuster nob facing down. I had these on the rear of my 2009 gmc sierra and they mounted the same way.
