lesson learned !

my guys at NAPA got me some shocks, and I took it for a road test today..... it's better, but still not what I was hoping for.....so , once again, checking it out, I find that one spring shackle bolt head is hitting the bracket the holds the bumper, ( should be an easy fix ) , then I see the ride height has changed, from when I had it on the floor jack, and once it's driven around and it all settles in, it's an inch lower, PLUS, I never figured in the weight of a full tank of gas, right now it only has 1/4 tank ! That means it's taking an inch or more of my shock travel away ! So, tonight I;ll re mount the shocks 1'' higher, as there is a hole there in the frame already...........Bottom line here is .......I didn't do enough research before I started this !!!!!!!!!
