Same shocks when doing a 8.8??

Getting everything ready to do the axle swap and was wondering I can use the same shocks as I have installed. I have a 4 inch leaf lift running skyjackers.

If you use a lower shock mount that accommodates being able to rotate it on the tube without the bushing binding to where it needs to be, you should be okay.

When doing so, make sure that the body of the shock does not contact the axle tube as the suspension cycles.

I have the same tearaflex shock bar. Works great. I think M.O.R.E. makes upper mounts that go up and forward.
