98 Chevy k1500 Z71 front suspension fix/upgrade

Recommended Posts

So as you can see my shock is no longer attached to my lower control arm. Finding a replacement has been a pain as they longer make that part. I believe Moog is the only company that makes a replacement. However the Moog part looks a little chintzy to me. Anyone have any experience with them?

 

Also I'd like to know if there's any other parts I should replace while I've got the front end apart. General tips and tricks are appreciated as well!2302a1224417029fbe6759dd21079d9c.jpg

Yeah that's been my experience as well. The only lowers I can find are gonna lower my front end 3in. and you just don't do that to a 4x4. I'm afraid I'm either going to have to try my hand at fabrication or hit up the local junkyard.
