Metal Cloak rear shock clearance kit

Has anyone used this? I would love to do this but it looks like it would get in the way of my rear sway bar and looks like I would need too buy shorter shocks. Wondering others luck with the kit.

It should not be an issue with the sway bar but will require the correct length shock so that you do not have issues with bottoming the shock out.

The MC kit raises the mount 3" iirc ?

I found a set used but haven't installed. I plan on Synergy uppers so I can keep my longer 9000's.

I have them, they work nice, solid pieces, just a little cutting and grinding, think i gained 2-3" of ground clearance, & yes you need shorter rear shocks.

What lift do you have and did it clear the rear sway bar ok? Thanks.

I'm using M/C 3.5 with OME shocks, (Kit came with rear track bar & bracket, no clearance issues on rear sway bar.
