New Rear shock mounts 2004 WJ

Kevin's off road says the 2004 WJ requires different rear shock mounts when replacing stock shocks with aftermarket shocks. I am ordering the IRO 3" lift soon and was wondering does it come with new rear shock mounts?

Also IRO says there may be occasional rear shock contact that most people choose to ignore. I plan to run 265/75/R16 goodyear wrangler duratracs on the stock rim with 3'' bumpstops and Rancho RS9000XL's, should I have a propblem with shock contact? I do not want to tear up new expensive rancho shocks.

The KOR rear shock mount kit is for the rear shock bushings. If your rear shocks clunk they are suppose to fix that problem. I have them and have no rear clunks.

As far as tires rubbing the shocks, only way to find out is to flex it out and see if they rub. If they do, you need to get spacers or different wheels.

I'm at 3" with 245/75/16 tires on stock rims and I am really close to rubbing at about 50-75% flex. I haven't had a chance to get it flexed all the way out yet. I would say that you should contact IRO and see if they send a similar kit to the one from KOR. If not, then get the shock mount kit just in case, it's only $20. Send Kolak a PM and he'll take care of you.

I'm just curious if my tires will hit my rear shocks more often because I'm getting RS9000XL's instead of the shocks IRO offers. Wheel spacers can be added later faily easily right?

Wheel spacers are as easy as changing a tire. You'll need a torque wrench though. I know my tires are close. Just try it and see what happens.

If he is installing the lift or ever working on a vehicle, a torque wrench should be a common tool to own.

You are correct, but I did the guessing thing for quite some time. I now have three and use them more than I ever thought I would. I think craftsman has their torque wrenches on sale again, so I may buy another to keep in the Jeep or something.
