When I talked to Kolak about jk shocks I think he said that style is kind of a factory replacement shock, so maybe they can't be mounted body up????

ZJ shocks should be body down unless they're upcountry shocks (body up) or tell you otherwise (like my MX6s that mount body up).

when i bought them he told me they were replacement for the upcountry (cuz thats what springs i got) tuened out to be 1" shorter then what i took off and the drain holes are on the end closest to the eye the front mount body down boot up the drain holes for the fronts and near the center of the shock. Thats why i figured the rears mounted drain hole down

fronts mounted

thats a 1"spacer

I'd try body down since its so easy to try. Cured Andy's problem that I thought was just crappy new shocks.

Ok so 2 questions, first I am still having issues with my brakes... They are very spongy at time. I've tried bleeding twice, that worked for about a day... Sometimes they're do spongy the pedal goes to the floor... Seems to be getting gradually worse.. Suggestions? I was thinking master cylinder but wanted opinions first.

2nd question, dots anyone know what this plug is for? It's on the drivers side right behind the washer fluid... Can't find the other end so I have no clue... Thx guys

I can't see bleeding making a bad master cylinder work for a couple days. Really sounds like it needs a better bleeding. Are you using the 2 person method or a vac pump.

the plug is probably for the limited vic washer low warning. If you have a loredo that's prob why its swinging in the breeze.

when it comes to bleeding does it make a difference if you're on a slight hill or flat ground? I've been doing it in my pitched driveway
