have axle out of 85 so thought i might change shock mts. my question is----- is it a REAL advantage to angle in shocks, will i lose stability on the street? run 4" lift, 35' tires.do u gain enough to make it worthwhile?
yeah, its kinda dumb for stability, but i have it...it allows you to get much more travel out of a shorter travel shock, but again the sidehill stabilty is comprimised proportionally to the angle. im going back to close to vertical. i think the main reason people do it is so they can run a 14" travel shock and not have the upper mount stickin into the bed of the truck to utilize the available compression on the spring...
finally, an answer to my quandary, i think i will weld mts. on the frt.of the axle, and run the flip plates i already have. i looked at alot of picts. on how to mt. them, but may do that later on when i get longer springs. thanks for anwsering my question,
