if you can wait till tomorrow I can get you the monro sensa trac number that fits. It took me alot of reading when I did mine but I had access to all the monro books. They worked in mine. Funny thing is when I called the place where I got my springs from they stated they never had heard of this problem.

The groundhog was right. Sees shadow or not, six more weeks of winter or six weeks till spring, either way is the same.

I would rather have the shocks. I'm just trying to do things the right way. If I extend the top stud and it snaps off then I don't have anything but a broken shock bouncing around under there. I like to do thing RIGHT ONCE.

Did u not get a new top plate with your springs? You need a new top plate that goes on top of your springs with the shock mount hole and the stock shocks will mount right on. I went with a 7.5" lift and 4 leaf HD springs in the rear with that plate - the shocks mounted right on.

I did not get a lift kit. Just new springs. Went to monroe web site and found the correct length I need to fit.
