I'm trying to gain as much travel as I can being that the shocks are for a taller lift.
Well if you can weld just get a thick pice of steel to bend in a U to match the OEM shock tower. Cut of the top portion of the tower, weld on the bent Steel, then weld the OEM top portion back on top.
So basically youre just welding in a spacer.
How tall the spacer should be i cant help you. You need to remove your shocks and see how much flex you have and go from there.
Im actually going to be doing this too pretty soon as a temporary fix. Eventually ill put in the ford towers to gain a full 4 inches and switch over to the other style shock...
