REAR SHOCK in denver??

Just had a field repair weld done on a rear shock ... Might need a new one if anyone has any in Denver or there are any shops local that would stock it?

It's holding on the highway. Still a couple of hours to Denver so I'll see when I get there.

I don't have an extra shock or know of any other shops that would carry it, but if you need a better weld, garage or tools let me know. I've got a good assortment of tools including a couple of welders and two good hands to help. I'll be around the rest of the day. My Wife and I live close to Larkspur about 45 minutes southwest of Denver.

I'm in Denver. There are two 4Wheel Parts stores here (I used to work at one). I also have a wholesale account there. They don't show any Rancho's in stock, but if you go to one of the stores, they may be able to find a comparable shock from another brand.

I'll PM you my cell. If you need a place to swap out some shocks, I have a garage and tools at the ready.

There's also this shop in Golden, CO. I've driven by a few times but haven't worked with them. They might have a used shock laying around? About LinDen Automotive & Engineering in Golden, CO

Funny, I was thinking the exact opposite. If he was running an eye to eye setup he should have no trouble finding a shock to work.

And how the heck does 4 Wheel Parts NO Rancho shocks in stock!?

They don't have those particular part numbers in the local warehouse.

He did when he broke the first shock. Put it back to stock and broke another one. Now he is having issues again.

Is Jason putting on weight?

Maybe he's gotten fat since Wintergreen....

How the shit are you breaking shock mounts all the time? I've broken tie rods, CVs, axles, diffs, transfer cases, etc....but have literally never broken a shock mount. And I drive like the varmint from 'Groundhog Day'.

I think this is where Briggsy was coming from. Maybe something is setup wrong. Unless it is 100% stock, I would pull the springs, move the axle through all possible ranges of travel and make sure that the shocks can't bottom out. Also check that there is no binding at the bushings.

You shouldn't be so careless .... ;-)

I'm wondering if I won my award for this 'trail' fix???
