Cool Shock relocation brackets

I have 2000 tj wrangler lifted 6in up front and 4 in the back, i was having problems with my rear shocks hitting my spring perch's so i put some Teraflex relocation brackets on it cleared the right rear but now the upper left of the left rear shock is hitting my gas tank. Any idea's? I do plan on lifting the rear to match the 6in up front, will that make any different? thanks

Get rid of the shock relocation brackets and just flip the shocks over so the strut is at the bottom which will provide additional clearance. Most shocks run fine like that, I have run at least 4-5 different shocks like that without problem... not many shocks don't do well when mounted like that.

Or use an angle grinder to grind a little extra clearance from the lower spring bucket to provide more clearance for the shock body.

Besides, that shock relocation bracket just gives more leverage against where the OE shock mount is welded to the axle which can cause it to be torn off the axle by trail obstacles.

How about cutting off old perches and getting some newer thicker ones from Rustys Offroad or other vendor that has em for your axle.
