My 9000's are about that age as well, they have formed to the mounts they are in. Still running original bushings also.


I want your factory 07-up take-off/thrown out JK front/rear Lower Control Arms! Bent ones are perfect also as long as the bushings and cold cut rings are in good shape/useable

Just about all the tjs sold by the company i work with have some of my dumb ideas welded on bolted up or fliped over.. Rear shock mounts/damaged shock tubes and uptravel are a major peeve of mine.
Damn. I'd love to get a pair if you ever have any extra laying around...

thanks for the pic mudb8- i need to snap a few of my set up and also measure to see how much room i have between the frame rail and tire. Last time I looked, mounting to the exterior of the frame was not an option for out boarding. I have already bought a set of f250 towers but have not gotten around to installing them!

Is Wayne tuning the non-remote reservoirs? I didn't think so.

I would stick with the ford towers!

Its pretty cool tho misfit had the balls to post that pic at the risk of being picked on...... One idea always sparks off another.

This. Most people don't want to cut the frame and would much rather just weld on a tab.

why is that? That sucks, because when I do actually outboard, I was gonna do some f250 towers. I got a pair in the closet I was going to use on my bronco, but ended up selling it.

It has to do with the way the top of the shock is shaped, vs what the mounting area of the tower is shaped like. There is interference between the two before the holes line up. I ended up making a set of custom towers for them when I did my outboard.

It's not an addiction. It's a way of life.

The Synergy towers do not have the clearance issues Ford towers do. Check them out.

I'm sure it shouldn't be hard to sell a pair of brand new towers

I have been eyeballing these from Barnes. They are significantly cheaper than synergy mounts and look well made. Any one have feedback on these yet? https://www.barnes4wd.com/mobile/home.asp?#page-46

For towers have clearance issues with fox's up in the mount. The only way to fit them is make your own, or use the polyperformance coil over brackets.
