I donít think the shocks care, I have radials on mine now and see no difference between these tires and the original tires. I sent my front shocks out to be rebuilt by Andy Falandes andys.shoxs@gmail.com

Drake rear sway bar kit
Easily installed with proper tools and equipment
Took 4 hours with an experienced mechanic (40 years), me and a fully equipt shop
Drilling through 3 layers of frame for the sway bar brackets was interesting.
The sway bar works well

I've used the Drake kit and the Pure Hot Rods kit and both are quality pieces. I prefer the Drake as it has the rear sway bar.
