    quick picture request. can you guys post up pics of how high you mounted up your 14"+ travel shocks on the rear of your truck or K5? i did the 63" spring swap so a pic of mounts that use alot of downtravel and not so much uptravel would be great. thanks.

    cool, thanks... how does that setup work for you? i kinda want to have my shocks in an upright position too. so how do you like them like that? would you have rather inborded them?

    On paper this setup will dampen better then inboarding because of shock angle and outer position mounting, but they are not trail tested yet so I can't comment on how I like them. But the jumping up and down in the back and dropping it off the jack factors seem to work well :wink1:
