    this is an opinion type of question what would be better relocating the shock to stay with the lenght i have or staying with stock mounts and go with longer shocks ?

    We kinda need a little more info, but I would say get longer shocks.

    id say relocate mounts and put bigger shocks on. try the f250 shock tower setup most people go with and some long travel rancho 5012s.

    14bolt rear in now had 12bolt with 4'' blocks . did homemaid shackle flip and reinstalled 2'' blocks now my shocks are to short .
    not a real big deal but i figured if i move my mounts down and more staight up and down i could still use the same shocks and they would work more eficinetly( take some of the angle out)

    if your gonna move your mounts, move them further away, and buy even longer shocks. if your going to have to buy shocks to do it right, you might has well spend the little extra money and buy longer ones. with extended mounts and longer shocks youll benefit in many ways.
