    i have looked for a wile and i can only find how too and write ups for the early tacomas. With the newer 2005+ tacomas the shock mounts on the side of the real axle. making the shock mount hang very low. is there any way to relocate the mount to make it on top of the axle or some were out of danger on the trails? i now with the older tacomas all-pro sold flip kits with shock relocation mounts but i can find nothing like that for the 2005+ tacomas.

    Thanks for any help or fix.

    You can make them yourself or get them from trail-gear. Weld on the top of the axle so they sit on the top, it's mostly for flex and don't really know how it will affect the ride.

    Do some research on the 1st gen factory ubolt plates. The shocks mounts are on the factory ubolt plates on the 1st gens. If the axle tube is the same width, and the upper shock mounts are in similar locations...you might be able to just swap u-bolt plates. Springs are the same width.

    Or, you could do something more extreme that'll cost more money to do - custom mounts on the axle tube (involves welding - something like this)

    Or a crossover design like this:
