So as the title says, I went to a friends shop tonight to install my new drop kit and it all went well until I went to bend the air ride rods. The first one bent fine but when I got to the second one it snapped after I got about half way :mad: . Where can I get a replacement one? Thanks in advance.

The dealer sells them for like 20 bucks. What year is your truck? Let me know if the rear air shocks stay hard. Mine stay like that. I thought they would deflate alittle when you turn of the truck. I had my two kids plus myself sit in the back and the air compressor kick on and raised it again. I guess it works fine. Its just that the shock stays hard. I hope in time it does not leak. Good luck. Throw some pics up when done.

Yeah, go ask the dealer for the replacement. I have seen a member here on the forum who broke it and just welded it back together. If you have a welder, that would work too.

You could also buy some all-thread and build one to the exact length you need. The ends knock off of the rod and can be put on another rod.

Thanks for all the replies. yeah I ended up just finding a screw around my house that was long enough and I just cut the head off and then threaded the two cup joints onto the screw. Good as new. I dont know if my rear shocks stay hard but the ride is a little bit rougher than before. It handles like a car now so its worth it IMO. And I got some 24" giovanna caracas with the solid black caps put on yesterday too. Ill post up some pics after I give it a good washing.
