Looking to replace my effed up shocks and ball joints but i get mixed answers when looking for suspension parts... My question is this, do i need to get shocks and joints to fit a 4wd?? Any help would be much appreciated.

Your parts don't necessarily need to be for the 4WD but they do need to be V6 as the 4cyl and V6 have different suspension and frame components.

Thanks for the quick reply, i thought the desert runners were built with the 4x4 frame and suspension without the 4wd???:confused:

No problem man, thats what the forum is for.

Essentially yes because the desert runners are V6 and the V6 frame is the same as the 4WD frame and suspension.

Judging by what 4x4parts.com says, I need 4x4 suspension.

My local dealer didn't think I should get 4x4 shocks so I'm torn.

I love my truck but damn is it frustrating being so in between.
