Default Shock help...

Is there a formula I can use to determine what kind of shocks/springs/coilovers, I will need for my truck due to the weight? Honey Badger is pretty heavy currently at 8500-9000lbs and it might even go up more... I'm going to upgrade my shocks again to either better shocks or coilovers with my stock suspension... But have no clue were to start?

This will get you close. But you will probably still have to dial it in. Pirate has a place to buy sell and trade coil over springs

I doubt it weighs that mucho.

If it does though, that is one heavy biatch!
