    I just finished my 14ff swap and my shocks are maxed out, i have a 4 inch lift and no name or number shocks, are you guys running a rear shock for a six inch lift? Not sure if these shocks were even for a four inch. Any how if anyone would post up what they are running with this setup it would be great.

    Thanks

    Did your 14FF come out of a 2wd truck? If so, the brackets are further down than a 4wd.

    Depending on your fab skills, I'd cut the brackets off and shorten them to weld back to the tubes in a position that they are above the bottom line of the tubes. This way nothing can get caught and drag on the shocks. Doing so should give you about 3" back into the shocks.
