    Hey guys, I ordered a set of 15s and low profile tires, and I'll have more room to go lower (already on a 3/3 drop on 16s and big tires). I'm staying static, and I'm worried about starting to scrape the shock mount on the rear axle on things.

    Is there a way to flip it so the shocks mount on top of the axle? This would keep me from dragging the ends of my ubolts too. Thanks!

    Are you just on blocks, or do you have lowering springs installed?

    I'm at like a 4/5 drop and the only thing close to the geound is the guard bar under my trans.

    I'm on blocks right now, but I'll be installing drop springs and lowering c/a eventually.

    Then you should be good, other than possibly banging frame with your axle or tire rub in the front wells

    I've got fairly stiff shocks right now and I cut the bump stops down, I haven't noticed any issues but I'll be cnotching the frame when I replace the bed has anyone done a side dump exhaust on a std cab this low?? I don't wanna do the bedside exit but I don't think risking sandwiching the pipe between the frame and the ground is any better
