hey
was wondering if any one could advise me on some good shocks for my swb gq...
i have had really bad experanice on shock in the pass and looking for sometyhing really soft so i can get lots of artic off road.
truck has two inch spring lift with stock shocks in atm and it just gets wheels up all the time

and also does the stabi off lever do much when four wheel driving?? i know what it does but does it improve truck much ?? :)

help would be awesome

Hi Benzo. Welcome to the forum. First, get yourself some OME shocks (or whatever brand you prefer) of the correct length. Your problem isn't likely the shock but using stock length shocks with a 2" lift. That's what is limiting your articulation. And yes, disconnecting the rear sway bar increases articulation off road - otherwise would Nissan go to all the expense of creating this option. I wish they also did the same for the front. Still this is better than what the competition offers. Just remember to re-engage the sway bar when you hit the pavement and want to do 90 kph around the corners.

Get them from someone who knows how to match them to your springs and the weight you will have.

Connect your rear sway bar.
Get softer front coils.
Make sure your castor bushes are rubber, something better then GQ solid bushes. pm me for more info on bushes.
If all those boxes are ticked try our flexy coils.
I will pm you about shocks.
