A boss at work had the wheels & tires stolen off his Escalade twice in one month. They used his landscaping rocks and timbers both times.

He lives in either Plymouth or Northville. Either way, they both look the same and I don't doubt the result will be different. They know you will replace them and they are easy picking.

I saw a pair go for $1300 on ebay not too long ago. Id prolly do around that. Not really needing to sell so i have no reason to go low. Just some triple bypasse with better valving for a heavy k5 blazer up front would be a better starting point for adjusting valves than rear raptor shocks...

To the OP: That sucks. Next set I'd try either weld the nuts to the bolts, or maybe even castle nuts and cotter pins would be enough to make it not worth the hassle for thieves. Or just buy some Monroe Sensatracs for it and call it good, cuz most people don't use Raptors offroad anyway

You guys can try to fight me for whatever reason you feel... Im not pushing anything on anyone, so I dont know why you are getting all "oh fukc that guy, lets prove him wrong" on me.... I have no need to sell my shocks, just that I would prefer different ones up. Im not trying to be a dick either

yup, real shocks are $$$.

All I do is play in the dunes, so im building my k5 just for that. Most people dont realize what im doing to my rig and why its at all special... Because they think some $75 bilstein 5100s are the sickest shocks ever when it comes to rock crawling or trail rigs... Not that big money shocks are necessary for the majority that do that, its just something people dont look at I think



And im sorry to to OP for massively derailing your thread. Ill keep a lookout for anything for sale online, and hope you find a lead.

Well my great grandfather had an issue with the Mexacans working in the family wreath building breaking into his house, so he hooked 210v up to his door knobs and ran wires around his windows. One day he came home from work and found a unconscious Mexican laying on the ground so you could electrify the truck and dump the bodies in a river.

No. With tack welds a stud/bolt can easily be defeated. Don't tack it. Weld it.

I am very sorry about your shocks and that sucks. Also I though this thread was about socks when I opened it.
