    I want to reweld my shock mounts on my 14bsf because they hang to low. I want to put them in the stock locations but the shocks on my current 10 bolt angle up to the upper mounts. How do I reweld the shock mounts on the 14bsf to line up with the stock upper shock mounts on the K5?

    Thanks

    If I'm understanding what you are asking here is what I would do. Get an old pair of shocks and drill out the sides to release the fluid so they won't keep trying to expand. Then bolt the bottom bracket to the shock and the upper shock to the truck. Put the bottom of the shock with the bracket bolted to it against the axle tube and position it where you like it. Tack it, unbolt the shock and weld.

    I have not done this and it may not be feaseable as I have not seen what you are working with, but in my head that's how I would do it.
