Thanks a bunch already.
Ran mine the same way yours are now. No problems.
Did you notice the shocks being weak when installing? Should hold pretty strong compression when pushed in and out.
Rear spacers are on bottom of the coils right?

Yeah, but supposedly the stock is better than addco for offroad applications. I'm just waiting to see if mine can handle it. Otherwise might see if I can make front discos work on the rear. That or just take the rear sway bar off altogether when I wheel

jaimie's WJ is a perfect example of the addco restricting rear flex.

Yes sir... Spacers are placed correctly... all 4 shocks had the same tension when I put them in. I'll try to flip them in the morning to see if that makes a difference. Hoping I didnt mess anything up underneath...

Failure is the chance to begin again, with increased intelligence... 100

Got my rigid industries dually back up lights wired up finally. Had them mounted for a while and couldn't decide where to mount the switch. I love em. They're extremely bright for the amp draw. I'm hooked on rigid industries now.

Can the rear shocks be upside down? (I know there is only one way for the front though)
