    Well now that the 56" springs are installed as well as the shackle flip :bow: its time to look at the shocks. During the install is when I noticed the rear is extremly limeted in droop by the shocks :( . Also somewhere along the way other adjustments were made. The pass. side has a hole drilled in the frame that has since been rounded :rolleyes: out and the drivers side has a plate on top of the frame. So what are my options Can I drill a hole lower in the frame and mount there or should I save up and get some trick 16" travel remote resivour shocks

    These spots in the frame you mentioned, are you saying they would make inboarding the shocks a problem? Most people make a brace that goes across between the frame rails to mount the upper ends of the shocks.

    Your going to want to get some new shocks to go with your new range of travel back there. You can get some pro comps from summit for about 34.00 each. They're not remotes, but they have around 13"-15" of travel.

    Forget all the kick arse stuff in those pics. I want the shop? Are the body lift spacers on the roll cage for a hilift mount?
