    Before I hear it, I have used the search function and that's where I get all the different opinions and conflicting info.

    I'm looking to narrow it down to my SPECIFIC drop.

    I've been collecting suspension parts to finish off my daily and I'm looking to purchase shocks this weekend so here's the rundown.

    Front: 3" drop

    DJM LCA
    25mm sway bar
    1 ton torsion bars


    Rear: 4" drop

    Beltech 5978 lowering springs
    1" beefed taco blocks.
    Belltech rear sway bar (near future)


    I understand that I will need stiffer shocks up front due to the upgraded torsion and swaybars and I'm pretty set on Bilstien for brand but which one? I've read where people used Camaro shocks for added stiffness so do I use the standard Bilstien shock for the 89-95 truck or go with the Camaro Bilstien (year)? I know I need stiffer but I don't need excessive over kill.

    For the rear I have no clue. I was thinking airshocks but have no idea where to start. Standard length for my drop? Shorter? No clue.

    Thanks.

    67-69 camaro or standard pickup will work fine. For the rear the stock application will be perfectly fine too.
