Damn alright. So I'm still looking at a 10" shock then if I use the 5" below centerline. The Fox 2.0 IFP's are 16.75" collapsed.

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

Any chance you've got a set of lower mounts for an lj so I can actually run the ome long travels I've got heading my way? I've looked into this thread a bunch of times over the last couple years, but it's now something I want to try and do. I'm really not trying to lift my jeep anymore, but I want to be able to run a decently long travel shock with stock upper mounts. I definitely want to pay you for your materials and your time, I just don't have the means of making them myself. Thanks mud!

Do you ever move out the bottom bracket without doing the full tower? If so, how do you handle the top mount?


I have the Nth degree shock shifters, but when I used the included top mount I lost an inch of upward travel and had to add bumpstop. So I quit using the shock shifters and went back to stock location. I'd be curious at how you handle the top mounts without adding the towers.

Do you sell these or similar lower rear mounts? Looking at running 14.5" collapsed length shocks with upper bar pin elimators on the rear of an LJ I just picked up that will have 2" spacers for now, eventually/soon 2.5" springs. I already have the shocks from a friend that had outboarded his rear and they are new bilstiens valved for a tj but I don't want to cut into the frame on this jeep at this time.
