Extended Front Shock Mounts

I just finished putting my spoa on and I was wondering if I need longer front shock towers? Or will the stock towers work fine? I just wondered if the stock towers limited articulation any.

Re: Extended Front Shock Mounts

Hey bro I just went through the same thing. Fortunately my kit came with shock mounts. You can use the stock upper front mounts. But to get the most out of your suspension visit www.petroworks.com. There you can find front lower mounts and rear upper and lower mounts. I then found shocks for 28.00 each at four wheel parts whole salers that would accomodate the added articulation.
It works way better. Later hope this helps!!Gino

Re: Extended Front Shock Mounts

You can get by with your stock towers. Rock Road sells bolt on upper front shocks towers, and I think ZukiSouth sells their own weld on, Petroworks sells Ford Ranger shock towers for about $30 which work very well. However with any upper shock tower mods you do it will require you to cut the old towers and possibly the upper bumpstops off to get them in place. The longer shock towers are really for Missing link setups, or to just get more flex from you SPOA. You can get by very easily with just your stock towers though.
