i dont know i thought the torsion suspension shocks might be a little different then the coil over shocks but maybe not ill have to ask around. i seen a set of 4 shock with a 2 in. lift for my truck on ebay but i just need 2 i dont know y i cant find them online maybe im not looking in the right place. does anybody know if the 4x4 shocks work on coil suspension or where i can find longer shocks plz let me know
