Rear Shock Top Mount Question...

If I make a top shock mount that brings them towards the middle (like the ones sold by vendors!), do I have to change the exhaust route or anything else?


Maybe I'll get off my a$$ today.......

Re: Rear Shock Top Mount Question...

It would depend on where your lower shock mounts are, how long of a shock you are going to use and how far in or out you are going to lean them.

You've seen my rig. I'm SpUA and exhaust in stock location. My bottoms attach to the plate and the tops are kicked in so they are about 4" away from each other. No interference. But you're SpOA right? That could be a world of difference.

Try this, use a couple of thin strips of wood and duct tape them to where you want them. Twist the rig up a bit and see if you got clearance. Just an idea, although someone here will probably laff at it.

Re: Rear Shock Top Mount Question...

I made my own rear top mounts and my muffler hits my shock just a enough to take the paint off. I had to lean them more closer togeather, not what I wanted to do but it works. Just a question for anyone, what is the best lean angle for the rear shocks to be at? Or, How far should they be from each other on the top mount? I know if you have them mounted wrong that would mess up your shock in the long run. I think I have mine mounted wrong, but I also have to get new rear shocks anyways so, when I get new ones I'll mount them right!
