RC TJ barpin eliminators

Anyone running the front ones?
Bought them to use with my jk shocks rather than going back to a bar pin mount.

The bolt that runs through the shock hits the "hump" on the back side of the axle Mount.

Only way I can see them working is by grinding that hump way down, Or stack washers under the bpe to raise the hole above the hump.

Thoughts?

You are supposed to bolt the shock to the BPE, then bolt the BPE to the axle mount.

I suppose that may work, but even then it may not bolt right on because of how tight the clearance is between where the bolt head or nut would be and that hump on the axle mount.

I shall try that tonight though.

Also, per the instructions..it just says to put the bracket on first. Hell..even in their instructions it looks like the bolt wont go all the way through because the end is hitting the damn hump on the axle mount.

I didn't have any trouble with mine at all, haven't even thought about them since I installed them, I'll try to get a pic when I go to work today.

Do you at least know what hump I am talking about? Where the bolt that runs through the shock eye goes it hits a raised part of the axle mount and doesnt allow you to put the nut on. If you try to insert the bolt from that side you cannot get the bolt in the bracket. I can see mounting the shock first adn then bolting the BPE down with the shock already on it..

If that doesnt work do you think washers to raise the mount up above that hump would be better, or grinding the piss out of that axle mount?

What I did was put the nut in place between the knurl hump and BPE then slid the bolt in and threaded the nut on.

The area the OP is talking about -

I just bolted the shock to the BPE then put it on. Worked fine.
Even though the instructions say to bolt the BPE first..oh well.

Decent improve in ride from the JK shocks. Im sure my stock TJ shocks were over extended and worn out.
