B.A.M.F 2nd Gen rear shock relocation kit.

We have been working on a shock relocation kit for a wile now and we now finality have one on a truck. We spent about 12 hours yesterday mocking up and installing this kit yesterday. We designed this kit to fit 12" stroke shocks off the front side of the axle.

The pricing is
DIY kit in pieces: $115.00 shipped

Fully welded ready to weld on the truck: $180.00 Shipped



NOTE you don't have to run KING shocks but they are the only shocks we have tested with this kit so others may not work in the buckets.

KING shocks tested KING Part# PR2012-SS 12.0" stroke 31.585" Extended Length 19.585" Collapsed Length 7/8" Shaft Dia




What the kit contains (Note this is just one side I comes with 2 sets of this)



All stock shock mounts were removed and ground smooth.


After everything was mocked up we tacked the buckets together.



After tacking the buckets we fully welded all seems.




Then we tacked the mounts to the frame and axle. The shocks are mounted and 90* from side to side and 9* forward







After we tacked it up we went out side to make sure everything was all good the shock mounts looked good he does need longer bump stops to stop the leaves from going into a negative arch. we also noticed the tire touching the shock body at full stuff. Wheel spacers or a less back spacing may be needed. Or with a 90* fitting on the shock it could be tucked tighter to the frame by about .75"

Looking Good Jerry

This is something that's been on my list for a while, I like the towers seem to be slightly stronger against flexing side to side compared to some shock hoops

Thanks Max that's why we went with the towers and not hoops i feel the hoops would need some kind of bracing to stop the flex. These are 1/4" plate and are not going to flex at all

Very Nice!

Noticed that the test truck has "Fabjunkie" Shackle Flip, will this make a difference for those sticking with the OEM Inverted Shackle?

Also, when produced with this kit come welded or in pieces?

It does it's not the greatest flip IMO I don't think it helped much with the droop I know it limits the up travel a lot it's putting the springs in a negative arch after a few inches of up travel maybe some longer shackles are needed but how it sits it's not changing much from stock other then adding ground clearance.

The kit will be offered loose or welded.

Seems to be some issues with the kit from a few members, hopefully they figure something out, as I've never been entirely sold on the idea of a shackle flip.

Nice to know, added to the list of things for my truck

FIFY.

Stick with your stock shackles and add a cross brace like the Defined.

Would that brace not allow you to store the spare in the stock location?

Have you put a price together yet? I have the shackle flip also, I think this would be the best compliment for it. I probably jumped on the shackle flip a bit soon but I had a bent stock mount that I needed to replace and did not want to replace with stock set up. I will keep an eye out for your improved shackle flip also.
