shocks
 
Looking for an all around not expensive shock. Had seen earlier recommendations for Monroe Gas Shocks. They are about $56 for two at Kragen. I have a little problem with the rear end sagging a little(see photos) Is there a better shock choice or another remedy for dragging the back end? Thanks. FC

1965 F100 2 wheel drive, that was the price for the lower monroe also at the store. Is that heavy duty enough?

If your suspension is sagging, shocks aren't going to help out that much. Might want to throw a helper spring in there or put some blocks under the leafs.

Yes, I agree, shocks will not help with the sag. Getting your springs recurved or replaced and then bew shocks. The shocks damppen the spring recoil and do not hold up the suspension.

air shocks
 
I posted awhile back asking about shocks. I finally had some time today and crawled under my 65 f100 and what I have are really old air shocks in the rear. I tried to pump them up and got just a little lift and it seemed I had the compressor going for a while. Since I can't read the psi recommended, is there a middle of the road psi I should try for? Or should I assume these are shot because they don't seem to be inflating. thanks for the help, the beast is running great besides this.

They're shot. Airshocks don't hold a large volume.
