    I just Took delivery of some fusion 4 x 4 axles which are Dana 60 and order new rockstar skids. It looks as though the bracket tree works without the skids, should I have any concerns not using the Evo brackets?

    The purpose of the Rockstar skids is to get you better ground clearance. They aren't required if you don't have that concern.

    I was thinking they had some sort of geometry correction for the coilovers as well? Not true?

    I may be wrong but I'm unaware of that requirement. I installed them on my JK with regular shocks and it just moves the mount 1.5" higher, no change in angle.

    The geometry of the bracket looks a little different but I think its because the mounting holes are more in the back instead of off to the side also by moving the bracket up puts the shock at a slightly different angle. But as far as I know its unrelated to the coil overs

    The lower shock bolt should be turned around. If you wheel much with the net and threads inside, they will be near impossible to get off later on.

    Plus the bolt head don't stick out as far to grab like an anchor.

    Thanks for the input guys appreciate the concern. I have since changed out to evo swaybar links and swapped that bolt after that picture was taken

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.
