    I will probably make one out of 3/16 steel eventually. For now I have a piece of 1/4 x 4" that I will use as an adapter. Ugh

    yes. I have a box of the hardware that was removed originally. I didnt send those to Downsouth. One thing that I didnt like, they did not replace the lower bearing. I can move it by hand. I know it could be an issue later

    Ah darn it's the little things eh and those are really easy to switch out, I had to do all four on my pair of shocks since they were bought used after being beat to crap. Bearings are like $12 each. Just hit me up if you want to try and diy and I'll walk you through it

    it bends down to clear the stock exhaust pipe. They also sell a rerouted exhaust version that is flat.

    I feel like you can’t get that mad about the fitment not being perfect when they don’t spec it to fit 4 cylinders.

    It looks like 2 circlips per shock. Not too difficult. Hopefully can be done with a C-clamp, and not removed fully and done on a vise?

    When I did mine the shocks were already uninstalled but I think a c clamp could work if you just want to swap out the lowers in the future. Once you remove the snap rings, wipe any debris out, and spray some wd40 to help them slide out it doesn't take much force. Might have to try that myself in the future just out of curiosity.

    maybe a c clamp and a socket? I think @Arcticelf has done this before.

    definitely possible and should do the trick, also try and order the rod ends from someone else besides king as they tend to overprice their parts. FK rod ends are same same and you can find them for a fraction of the price. Your rod end bearing part numbers should be FKS10T and should be about $12 each.

    The bent section is for the exhaust crossover on the V6. They could've made one large rectangular piece of metal that covers the transmission and transfer case with no bends in it. The only bends needed are at the sides to add strength, like they did to the transmission skid.
    I'll be adding a "review" of the transfer case skid later today (or tomorrow).
