    i dont know if the frames are that different from Pickups and k5s but the inside of my frame is ~33" apart, but my ?? is how far apart are the upper shock mounts and where did you mount the shocks on the axle, thanks for any help.

    It's what I plan on doing to mine, but I'm having mine done by a local fab shop.

    Heres my plan of attack on mine. I made lower shock mounts out of a spring perch since i'm running duals. They will be placed on top of the axel with 2 shocks heading up to the upper mount. The upper mount is made of 2x2 tubing that is going to be mounted to the top of the frame rails. Now the math part. I'm setting them up so they are in the middle of thier stroke so I have travel both ways, then angle them up at 22.5 degrees. I'm also mounting mine upside down so they are softer.
