On advice from the Forum I ordered my shocks from gord@essexdistributors.com and am absolutely amazed that a such simple change would transform the vehicle as dramatically as these shocks have. CANCELLED MY RAPTOR.... Essex were incredibly thorough on processing, shipping and tracking my order for me. A distinct pleasure these days. I got the lift I wanted the ride, as stated, is excellent and you can even adjust to "factory" TRX height right up to my "max" lift with no spacers or extra stuff required. The way I look at is for $400 I got a leveling/lift kit PLUS the best shocks on the market for this application. DO IT!
Did you buy the struts and shocks?
