Re: Keep Blowing front shocks???

Les Schwab shocks? Both of our trucks have the LS shocks and the wife has had three go out and one on mine - ALWAYS the left front. I don't know why and each time they try a different length/valving shock to see if it will hold up. Both trucks are only leveled.

2000 F350 PSD, 4X4, CC, LB, 6-speed/ PHP Tuning /1.0 Turbo (no wastegate) with WW/ 4" turbo back exhaust/ AIS Intake with fender sleeve/ Isspro EV gauges/

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should!

Re: Keep Blowing front shocks???

I blow through them too RMX's from schwabs.This last set seems to be better as longevity goes.Maybe they are getting tired of swapping them.
