    With the King 2.0x12, the new axle tabs (see post#1) coming with the kits, it should be around horizontal on the bottom edge. You have the original old axle tabs.

    With the Fox 2.0x12 linked in post#1, they will likely be above horizontal

    it looks like it would depend on your tire size and wheel offset. I read somewhere that you may not need spacers if you have 285's (33's) with 3.5" backspace

    I meant the spacers between the bed and the tower (not wheel spacers), sorry for the confusion. When I ordered my original towers, it came with 1 inch spacer blocks. These trail series doesn't have an option for which size bed so I'm wondering if it will still require the blocks.

    No this one doesn't bolt to bed, its a little shorter, but still tall enough for proper bump travel

    This is super awesome and really tempting if wheel spacers aren't required with ~4" backspacing. That's always been my biggest gripe about previous rear shock relocation kits because as a trail rig in the PNW my truck barely squeezes through alot of our trails here as it is (plus I just don't like the look of spacers in the rear).

    Mine are above horizontal. I calculated mine though, so i could maximize down travel while still having as much up travel as possible. This kit does a good job of that.

    With this relo, 4" bs, and 285s, I think it might just clear without spacers

    Truck at ride height, measured the distance of bumpstop from bottom out to top of bump pad. Set the shaft length 1/8 inch longer. That way at full compression with the bump stop i will still have 1/8th of and inch before the shock bottoms and then also get the bare min loss in down travel. Then measure the amount of bump at full droop which made the difference in the full 12 inches of travel.

    Nice! I'm running 285s with 4.3" BS and -10mm offset so I'm hopeful they'd clear. The $100 off is really tempting right now but I have a really crazy summer ahead so realistically I wouldn't have time to install till this fall. I figure I'll let some other folks try them out and see what the results are but I definitely see these in my not too distant future.

    He doesn't sell shocks. You will have to source those on your own.

    You can wait on the shocks like the most of us right now.....you are really not going to get a better deal than this at anytime. You don't have to install it right away. I am waiting at least 6 months before my shocks come in.
