Hi, I have a S10 Blazer, 4 door, 4x4 with a 2 inch suspension lift. My current shocks are older, and since doing the suspension lift several of the shocks squeak. I assume this is because the shocks are not operating at the designed length now. How do I determine what shocks I should get? Thanks for your help.
Shocks really don't have a way to make noise, being a hydraulic cylinder (though the rubber bushings can squeek. WD40 can sometimes take care of that :-)
The noise is probably something else.
More about shocks for lifted trucks is mentioned on our website here - Trucks with a Lifted Suspension
Basically, you want to check with the lift kit manufacturer and see if a longer shock is required, or if the kit is designed to use stock shocks (kits are made either way).
