rear shock issue


Recommended Posts

I just put on my new shocks the other day and they are pretty much maxed out. i checked the part number and they appear to be the correct shock. so i figured i would just raise the lower shock mount up as they do on the XJ's. only thing i am concerned about is the shock eye is turned 90 degrees from the stock configuration. i was looking at using (or

making) mounts like the JKS Rear Axle Shock Mount. any ideas if this will work ok?

Turning the eye shouldn't matter.

 

Can you not find the appropriate shock? I was getting Skyjacker Hydros and had to get the 5" lift shocks for my 2" lift. :nuts:

 

I just kept sending em back saying they didn't work. First tried 0-2", then 3-4", then 5". They don't know MJs for $#!&.

i have the skyjacker nitros.... supposed to be the right ones. i think it has something to do with the skyjacker kit for MJ's is a spring over arrangement, where mine is still spring under and therefore the shock mount is even lower. i figure i'll just fab up some brackets and weld them on. ill have more ground clearance and more travel too!
