    I have a real quick question for ya. I am not near my K5 right now, and need to move my shock mounts on a 14ff tomorrow. My question is, if you are standing behind your k5, facing forward, and look under it at the rear axle, which sides are the shock mounts on? I really need to know if the drivers side shock mount is on the front or rear of the axle tube (front being towards the hood, and rear being towards the bumper, just so nobody is confused). This will tell me where to put the passenger side shock mount as well. Tnanks.

    Put it where you want it. Most people have relocated them anyway. I'm gonna have both of mine in the front a bit higher than the stockers

    On the driver's side the mount is on the back of the axle. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    keep in mind if your rig is a DD relocating the rear shocks so they both angle the same direction can and probably will introduce rear wheel hop.
