Longer Shocks on the CJ, please help!
I just got the 33s MTR on my 79 CJ 5 and I love how they look and do in the mud, but the flex is lacking. I am currently running the shocks that came with the 2.5 inch rancho kit in installed on the jeep, the promblem is I put on a 1 3/8" shackle lift on the jeep and the shocks are now to short.
I have read that CJs around the same vintage as my jeep will not flex worth crap (even with proper length shocks, because of the short shock mounts).
What can I do, should I just buy the proper length shocks?
Or is their any way to make or buy taller shock mounts, then buy new shocks to fit those, which should give me more flex?
Any suggestions will help?
