I used monroe shocks off of an f-150 for the front of my Sammy. That was still with stock mounts and 3-4 inches of spring under lift. It rode like ass but it worked good for jumpin. :smokin: Maybe you could look into shocks off of the back of a smaller truck like a ranger. I know they are pretty long, but I don't have any measurements or anything. If they're too short, look into cheap lifted shocks like the ones out of jcwhitney.
that's what I'm talkin about
I know there are some very inexpensive shocks to be had from NAPA, and I know Monroe makes some as well all in the "tight budget" range.
And if you look thru what they have to offer, I'm sure you'd find somthing that'd fit a SOA Zuk, and work well.
Pro-Comp makes extended shocks for about $32 ea outta Summit Racing Catalog.
I'm also headed for the local Pick-n Pull wrecking yard to look at some long shocks off a truck like the Supahfly suggested. That could be the ultimate deal in finding a good shock for the money.
Needless to say, I'm on a tight budget. I got three kids and just spent my life's savings on Christmas. LOL
