    uhh... just a quick question.. are you bumping your suspension out before your locating those shock tabs on that axle? if so, screw the lines, re-locate them wherever they need to be so they do not rub on anything. from there, mount as per typical mounting instructions....

    Just move the lines, be careful and bend slightly in different areas and you will be fine. I cant find a pic of the driver side but you can see how mine are angled. For clearance they are just above where my spring plates are with the complete leaf pack and that allows you to drop the bed cage pretty far down too

    Edit: Here you can see it just bending up and over the shock mount

    This, tack EVERYTHING and cycle one last time before you weld anything on for good too. I tacked the lowers first and located the top mounts off that

    By bumping do you mean cycling? If so then yes I'll be cycling before welding everything for good .. My whole bed cage is still all tacked incase I need to make any changes

    Anybody in here running DMZ's SUA kit with their shocks postitioned vertically instead of towards the front of the bed?

    Those of you that are running your shocks towards the front of the bed, are you running 16's?

    Do you guys use pretty close to all 16" of those shocks? I am planning to run my shocks off the back of the axle and as close to vertical as I can get them to clear my toolbox (so possibly slightly backwards). My understanding is you can run shorter shocks by angling them forward and since you guys are running 16's I figured I would likely need 18's. I'm waiting to hear back from Tim for sure, but in his 1st email he seemed to think 18's would be more shock than necessary.

    No I am not using all the shock. At full droop I still have 1.5-2" of shock left if I remember correctly.
