    I was thinking about moving my rear shocks inward like a lot of people on here have done. I have a 14 bolt and I am sick of hitting the bottom shock mounts on everything. My blazer is a daily driver and I have really soft Deaver Springs, I want to know how much does this change the shock feel and handling of the blazer???

    Alot of people say inboarding shocks in the rear on a DD is not the best ride. Do you have a body lift? I have been thinking about relocating the shock mount on the axle straight back/forward and moving the frame mount up also.

    No body lift, but I did already flip( rewelded) the mounts on the axle so they are no longer sticking below the axle. The problem now is that I am bottoming out the shocks because the suspension is so soft...
