    I was looking at the K5 and planning out the 52" swap in and was wondering how you guys mounted your shocks. I have high steer and am putting my D60 in at the same time so will have to mount the shock tabs to the top of the tube then connect them pretty much staight in line with the frame right above the factory bumpstop bracket.

    On the drivers side it looks as though the steering shaft will be in the way of said idea........anyone seen a setup like this? I am sure they exist just don't remember off the top of my head:o

    Thanks for any help:wink1:

    I don't think he is at this point yet. He mentioned in his article he was getting the WFO high steer, but I haven't seen any posts lately about it.
