Post a picture.We have Bilstein shocks in the front of our F150, they at least in my mind are not by pass shocks but have a tube to adjust compression on one and rebound on the other, does anyone have an idea how Norra would look at them?
If the tubes are outside the body, they sound like bypasses, even if only 2 stages total.

When Matt Pike had the truck , it was never raced. We used it as a prerunner.Chris can you call me? I have one other question.
A little background my truck is a 1980 F150, originally built by Sprit Racing for Bill Holmes, he ran some rally and I believe a few times as a class 8, it was sold to Hertzog who ran class 8 with it, then to Matt Pike, but i can not find out what he did with it, after that it ended up in New Mexico.
Legend truck is limited to 2" shocks. My understanding is smooth body shocks with reservoir's being OK. I think last year a few of the trucks that entered Legend Truck got moved to full leaf open truck.
Any heavy duty twin tube design shock from the 70's was larger than 2", Maramount and Gabriel the majority of the shocks for the US automotive market and they were between 2-1/4 and 2 7/16. I don't have a Rough Country Mark 5 close to me, but I'd bet they were 2 1/2. KYB's and Bilsteins were 2" and less becasue they were a single tube gas design.Legend era needs to be 2" smooth body. Remote resi ok and no limit to number of shocks.
Back in the Legend Era the fast trucks had quick release mounts so they could drop the smoking hot shocks on the ground and slap in a dozen new ones while they fueled the truck.
We only used it a couple times as a prerunner, for the 1000 and a couple other races over maybe 2 years. Matt had it painted and it pretty much sat after that until it was sold.Thanks that fills in a blank spot in truck history, can you tell me how long and how much you used it?
We built 2 (mostly) STOCK trucks for the new body style introduction, so this truck could very well be one of those. The trucks were driven by Carl Jackson and Stan Gilbert for their intro at the 79 Baja 1000. I do remember Ford insisted on STOCK ! , but we pushed a few things (suspension) as far as we could !Old S trope do you think that is so?
