I know many of you have lifted your rigs and put lots of time into figuering out the best geometry for remounting your shocks. What we/I need here are some good write ups with pics. Last year I did the toy axel swap and stopped just short of mounting my shocks (procomps). This year it's time for me to finish this project and I need your ideas/pics.

Thanks

as straight up and down and you can get them will net you the best performance.

From my experience angling them in like this /\ reduces their dampening force and leads to a "bouncy" ride. It also seems to increases body roll.

instead of going like this /\ I moved my the other way the mounts on the frame I moved more to the back

a shock is designed to move at a 90 deg as the srings or trailing arms what ever
you use. to mount them at an angle allows the axle to have more leverage than
the shock has dampning ability. not allowing them to do the job there designed
to do. just babaling. LOL;-)
