Out boarded my shocks
 
Just got my TJ back from a rear upper spring relocation and outboarding my shocks. I picked up about a foot of static travel in the rear. Not sure if it is a good measurement, but I ha 32" to the bottom of my tire in the am 34" in the rear.

Looks titty, what did you use for lower shock mounts?

Nice work, who's towers? I've been looking at the Ford shock towers and the Poly ones as well. I haven't done much research yet.

Do I see a coil correction kit on there too? I plan on doing both of these when I do my lift.

Love the color of your Jeep, looks like you just rolled out of Baghdad.

I used the Poly Performance rrear coil over kit, which comes with the lower mounts and relocated the stock upper coil mount to correct the spring position.

I'm ordering metalcloaks and out boarding my front shocks over winter break, so I'm kinda sorta really jealous of your built at the moment.

:confused: :confused: You mean rear shocks?

Ford towers are the least expensive route. I bought 4 at $23 a piece.

From what I read about outboarding, the Ford shock towers will interfere at full flex, which is why I selected the Poly kit. It was between Pply and Genright. Poly was a bit less expensive, but in hindsight I think the Genright has a wider upper mount for better flex capability for Jeeps without lift. If you notice, I have my rear shocks upside down to gain additional clearance. I'll try to take some additional pictures. The work by the way, was done by KrawlTex in Austin.

This is one thing I have been meaning to read up on a lot. Especially for the next build of this Tj, which will be a more low cog build.

Any good write ups on the pros, cons and who benefits more from it? Both the out boarding and coil correction.

Thanks

This is a good thread if you haven't read it yet.
