    When I install my lift, will I have to get another bracket to install a single shock? I have the factory quadl right now.

    I do believe that one of the shocks is in the position of the single shock. Probably the foremost one. Determine the single shock appropriate for tha application. Check at the dealership.

    When i did the 4:10 swap (housings and all) into my sub, it had the quads, the donor didn't. but the flanges on axles end were the same. Vehicle had 4 fairly new shocks, so what the heck! If frame is quad, axle dual, it seems the bolt is the big difference on the lower end.

    and.. based on what the donor had, i'd think the rearward shock was the 'factory' mount. Think the 'add on' was more forward/vertical mount' (or at least it seemed on mine...)
