    Hey Guys,

    What do you know about shock extenders?

    I am about to put 5100s on the rear with an 2" AAL, and was wondering if I can also put an extender on there.

    What are they?
    How do they install?
    Can I use them on 5100s?
    Do they limit movement?

    Thanks guys....

    Cheers

    No, they exist. $15 bucks at Toytec. You won't need them on 5100's in the rear at 2" of lift.
