    Well in my opinion what you did wrong was the whole thing. Not trying to be harsh, but for your safety never try to make your own lift!

    It is extremely dangerous not to mention the fact that your shock is no longer capable of doing what it was designed to do.

    See build thread.
    Man. You just gotta take em off as soon as you can and put shocks that you didn't try fabbing up.

    Making you own shit is cool. But messing around with that kind of crap is dangerous to everyone.

    x2 altering the shock makes it much weaker. take a good enough hit and it might give away and that wouldnt be a pretty result.

    LrgRnr? Jason's lawncare? Jandrews? anyone? i extended the base of the shock 2.75" with 1.250 o.d. chromoly make a circle with ur thumb and index finger that's about how thick that is. i didn't use tubing or piping i used round stock once i got the paint off the lower shock rod it slid into place with two taps of a hammer it's solid not hollow.
