Nth Degree/AEV Rear shock shifters

Looking at getting a set of these. Anyone have them? Looking for input about them. Good/bad points? Issues after install? Do they increase/decrease(lengthen/shorten) available shock travel?

I do not want to do the whole "ford towers to the outside of the frame" bit, but would like to gain a little clearance if possible, and also need to increase shock travel a little.

Thanks

theres a few thread on here regarding these, use the search. Nth/AEV isn't the only game in town. Superlift makes a nice weld on kit, and BTF and MORE have similar DIY spring buckets too.

the problem with kits other than nth that aren't fully outboard is the mounts are moved up and you loose uptravel.

the shock shifters allow you to use longer shocks on smaller lifts.

^^^^ is my problem.

Here's the deal. In 2005 I did a Rubicon Express 4.5 longarm. I went with the RE mono tube shocks. Since my install, RE has determined that the shocks that came with the kits then were a tad too long and could bottom out slightly before the bump stops did. They have since started using a shorter shock to eliminate this.

Well, one of mine went bad, I sent it back(lifetime warrenty) and they honored the warranty. For that I appreciate their efforts(as well as one of the vendors here, i.e. Redrock 4x4). But I was told that I need to either adjust my bumpstops(meaning decrease my travel which I really don't want to do), configure my mounts to match the shock length, or buy new, shorter shocks. Since I wanted to change the mounts anyways, I chose this route. If the Nth degree mounts will give me shock travel I need, and move them outboard a little at the same time then thats what I'll do. From the above post, that seems to be the deal....

Thanks fellas,

Any further input/advice would be much appreciated as well.

lower relocation alone will gain you upto 1.25".

I also make lower relocation mounts and will send free patterns to DIY'er's... the material needed are about 10 bucks, having the means and ability to weld.




stock mount...



relocated lower..
