    New lines compared to factory Length..

    Still need to pick up a brake switch and bleed them..
    Hey piginajeep, did you have to modify the jk shocks to fit your FC mounts? I have a set of rubicon shocks that I'd like to put on my FC -150... your suspension setup looks similar.

    I just pressed in new hour glass bushings on one side, and drilled out the other side for the larger stud on the FC.

    These work fine until I finally decide to buy the right ones, but they are stiff enough for the FC IMO

    Hmmm, I'ms till a couple weeks away from reassembling with new shocks and springs, I may just sell the Rubicon shocks and go with 'OEM'. I can't wait to get this thing rolling. Thanks for documenting your adventure, very inspiring!

    The rubi shocks or the OEM aren't stiff enough? If you're referring to the current stance in the pic, it's soft alright. The original shocks are still on it and the leaf springs look like a shitty deck of cards. The passenger front spring snapped off at the bushing

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
