    Actually, that hole is there from the factory but, we were planning to install a shock relocation bracket and it would have been used.

    To answer your other question, yes, the King shocks are HUGE and when flexing big on the trail, they were making contact with the frame and that was causing the shafts to bend.

    Did he install the relocation brackets up front? Too late for this round, but that shock bind was why they started including in the kit.
    I think I may consider lifting my Jeep. Or not.

    That's right. I forgot about that brake line bracket being there. It's been a while since I've had them. Thanks!

    Ya I forgot the brake lines had a bracket that bolts there originally. I was wondering if the Kings hit with the relocation brackets. I just assumed he had them on there already. I just bought the 2.5 kings and they are definitely huge! I have the relocation brackets in already and was just thinking I still had something to worry about there. Those shocks are such a huge improvement! Thanks!

    Didn't get around to it. Just got the rockstars and rear coil spacers installed. Also when through and checked/charged his other shocks.

    You should be fine with the relocation brackets.

    Yup. Front shock relocation. The EVO bracket kicks the shock out. You should order up a pair. They were about $70.

    Thanks! Curious: What size rear spacer is MTG using?

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.
