    The truck never goes up in a lift and I’m definitely not fitting underneath lol. I just welded the brackets anywhere they came in contact with the rear end

    Forgot I sent @Leo1103 a picture when I did it. Yeah it’s the DJM stuff. After speaking to a bunch of people, I regret doing drop shocks and shock extensions. You’re supposed to do one or the other, not both

    And the drop shocks that go with the kit are a horrible combo with the 6” drop spring.

    Cool, Thanks.
    One or the other, not both? Huh, that's a first.
    I thought without the extender the angle of the shock would be almost 45 degrees (that's and exaggeration) but it would be at an angle where the shock would not perform as it should being more upright.

    I need to get under mine, its about that time to re-tighten everything, again.
    I may end up pulling my welder out and just zap everything.

    View attachment 220772 You can see the bolt is missing for the shock bracket. Well I had this issue with the swaybar riding up on the bolt 965D0181-31FF-4F93-85F7-653F4AE6038A.jpeg 6800A36A-F391-4639-B3C2-D0D4522124A0.jpeg

    unfortunately I screwed myself with that. I already notched the frame and didn’t anticipate the weight in the rear making it that much lower. So if I do arms to center the rear, it won’t be centered in the notch
