Let’s say you have an old Jeep Grand Cherokee and the rear springs are sagging and the shocks are shot. You want to restore the ride height and firm up the ride but you don’t wan’t to spring for new leaf springs and shocks, what do you do?
Monroe coilover truck shocks is what you do. They have a coil spring on the outside of the shock that will prop up the rear end of your truck a little bit and improve the ride and handling. According to Monroe you can load bump up your trucks load capacity by 1200 lbs.
On this S10, they raised the rear of the truck exactly 1 inch. This customer tows a trailer and this was the best bang for the buck, he didn’t want to go with overload springs or air bags. This is the perfect solution for a light weight trailer like he tows.
I’ve been talking about the rear, but coilover shocks are available for the front suspension too. They work great on old ford trucks for example.
Coilover shocks are the best bang for the buck when you don’t want to put a lot of money in an old truck. Plus they’re great if you tow a trailer. This is the cheapest way to stiffen up the suspension that I know of. Amazon carry’s them and they have free shipping the last time I checked.
