    Does anyone know, what kind of shocks shock I use? The previous owner put a 4in rear block drop and deleted the torsion and cancelled the rear shocks and I would like to know what is the best route for a smoother ride. Let me know!

    wait... no torsion bars? no rear shocks?????

    sounds like even just zip tying a banana to your bump stops would smooth that ride out!

    I suggest getting torsion bars up front and shocks out back. Drop blocks don't affect the total shock length, so anything that fits stock would work. Torsion bars you may get at a pick n pull or something, but I did go with Sway-a-way bars for my own ride.

    Are the torsion bars completely gone for sure?
