Since I had the bed off to work on the exo, I took a look at the rear upper shock mounts. It turns out some dummy didn’t really set them up right, so with a load on the back of the truck , the shocks were acting as the bump stops (D’oh!). With the truck sitting static, I had about 2″ of shock up travel left (They were mounted vertical) . The problem is my bump stops allowed for 4″ of up travel.
The new mounts leaned the shock forward about 2″ more, and moved the mounting hole up about 1.5″. I now have about 3.75″ of shock shaft showing. If my trig is right, I shouldn’t have to worry about the shocks acting as the bump stops anymore.
