    I have a quick question that I couldnt find an answer to.

    This upcoming weekend I will be picking up some remote resi shocks for the rear of my truck. I'm going to be putting them on myself and had a quick question. Where do I put the resi and how do I keep it there?? I like the look of mounting it on the frame rail but is there a bracket needed? I was told to have tabs welded on but I feel like there's a simpiler solution. Any advice and maybe some pictures would be great!

    You can buy weld on resi mounts. thats the easiest / best way to mount to the frame. or you can buy rubber mounts and mount the resi to the shock piggy-back style.

    if they are OE replacements then there should be a bracket that bolts to the frame and holds the resi

    don't know what yours are coming with, but mine came with the bracket and a hose clamp. all i had to do was drill a hole in the frame to mount the reservior holder.

    I can't tell by the pictures, but do you have anything else in the rear? i.e. AAL or blocks?
