any of yall out there with stock shocks who drive in the dirt know how much it sucks when sand gets inside the shocks. so, heres a 30 second fix that'll get rid of that.

get some electrical tape, and cover the top of the shock, where the hole to access the shock shaft is. cut it to fit, so it seals on all edges, and there ya go. sealed shocks.

(yea, im bored, and avoiding yardwork, needed an excuse. "mo-om, im doing homework! honest!")

I like that, shock-socks for the OL. =)

What do you think about using heat shrink tubings off a "?" size that will just stay on the shocks after you shrink it? Would look cool but will it work or jam the shocks?
