    I have been looking into rockstompers u bolt flip kit because it relocates the bottom shock mounts up closer to the truck for more suspension travel, has anyone tried this kit to know i should be able to run my factory shocks, i have a daystar 2.5in shackle lift with factory shcoks, any info and opinions would be helpful, thanks

    Holy thread revival Batman!! Sorry guys...
    I searched this forum with a similar question and this thread is the only one that came up regarding the this u-bolt flip kit.

    Did you end up using the Rockstomper kit?

    I was wondering pretty much the same thing. I will be running 5100s front and rear and was curious if the higher strut mount on the leaf spring from the Rockstomper kit will have an effect on the 5100s because of the lift settings they include. Is it going to lift the rear end of my truck higher than it would be with the stock strut mounts? Or will my leaf springs keep the truck from lifting itself any higher?

    Look at build!
    Rear shocks don't lift the truck, leaf springs do and or blocks, shackles, aal etc.

    Hmm I guess I misunderstood. I thought that the 5100s had settings that will actually lift your vehicle. Apparently more research is required on my end. Thanks!

    The front 5100's have that option, the rear 5100's don't.
