    hey guys,

    i am getting ready to do a 6inch lift on my truck and was wanting to do the long travel shock trick with the ford mounts. my ? is how do you calculate the spot to mount the tower at? and you just use the stock mount for the lower one correct?> i have dual shocks so which one do i use? or is it the same lower mount for both, i forget? probably go with the 14" travel Bilstein 5150 or pro comp adjustable monotube reservoirs the front, not sure about the rear, any ideas for more art. in the rear?

    thanks a lot for the help,

    Brandt

    I just did this on my suburban, finally. I'm using the same shocks as Steve. Yes you can use the lower stock mount. I used the two holes on the frame from the stock upper mount and added a third hole. I also enlarged the holes to 1/2 inch. I mounted mine about dead center of the shocks overall travel. Once I had that, I used the shock to figure out were to mount the tower.
