Default Air shocks

New be here, just purchased a 61 series 1000 with a 305 step side long bed coil spring rear end and cannot find air shocks for this P/U. Is there an outlet that sells an air shock for this P/U.
Thanks: Joebo

Default Re: Air shocks

If you are hoping to use the air shock to increase payload capacity or ride height you will probably break the shock mounts.

Since you have coil rear springs, an air bag inside the coil spring would put the added load on the much stronger spring mounts.
