New shocks on the Ranger

I got the new front shocks installed on my truck yesterday.  It took me 3 hours and honestly about half of that was fighting with my driver’s side inner fender well.  Luckily I figured out that by using 15″ of extensions on my ratchet I wouldn’t need to remove the inner fender well.  Thus the passenger side went much more swiftly.  The truck rides a lot better now that the shocks are doing anything at all.  The old ones were just about completely blown, and rightfully so being OEM dampers with 161,000 miles on them.  As an FYI, I replaced the rear shocks at 124,000 miles with Monroe Sensa-Trac shocks and just did the front ones with the matching set of Monroe Sensa-Tracs.  It sure does drive nice now.
