I'd be curious to know why? And I think mounting them in the rear would be easy but not so sure about the front. The gywn Lewis kit recommends +5 shocks and provides mounts for f+r but only for standard shock. Cor4 has the only front remote resevoir shock tower I've seen??

Plenty of others. RTE sells them, and I am using Qt mounts.

Just so you aware Brian (brewie) makes some shock mounts that are pretty sweet. I have a set on my truck and they work just fine. Lots of travel for the shocks and it moves the front ones outside the spring.

You reference in your first post you are using QT relocation shock brackets in the front but I can't find them on their site for the life of me.....where are you finding them?


And thanks for the heads up arcadeus

Some of it's custom made. Call L8.

What did you guys run in the rear to mount a shock with eye's or whatever they are called (not pins) up top? I can only find extended pin style mounts for the frame? RTE has some but claim to be for 90's only

I went with a custom rear set up that brewie made up for me in the old safarigard style... I converted my bottom mounts so I could go eye to eye and get into the more premium varieties (fox, bilsteiin) that tend to be more available in eye to eye styles...

That's what I'm after. Cor4 makes an adjustable mount too but I can't get a hold of them. Also worth noting I found out you can convert a fox shock to pin mount on the bottom but not sure with a long travel setup if thst would be pressed to the limit.

I know someone that runs 14 inch short body bilsteins in the rear with bottom pins. He hasn't snapped any thing yet but I think the eyes have inherently less binding.

Just get brewie to make you up a set and job done.

Not sure if RTE saw my post but Bill emailed me today saying his will fit a 110 so im going to order those.

Zach, thanks for the offer but after talking with matt I am trying to figure out if I can fit fox 2.5".

If I remember my conversation with bill correctly, those mounts are set up for a 10" fox sizes shock.

That's great to know and bill did confirm I can fit fox 2.5" shocks so now need to figure out which ones.
