Thinkin of moving my lower rear shock mount brackets so it doesnt hang below the axle. Anyone done this? What did you do? Have to get new shocks? Any help would be appreciated! :popc1:

I've done it, and you may need new shocks because they will have to be shorter. You will also loose some travel because of that, more so if its not lifted very much because the shock will get pretty short

You could relocate both and keep the shock you have, or even run a long shock...Not sure on that one. I was going to box a section of the frame where the rear shock mount is, and use a F-250 front mount, and raise the lower mounts.

I was going to go this route because I've considered adding the under floor storage.....Otherwise I would just add a crossmember all the way across, and then tabs to it as well.

New upper mount, maybe 2.5" higher up:



New lower mounts, maybe 3-3.5 higher up:



there are lots of ways to tackle the upper mount.
