    RC Shock Relocation Bracket

    I just ordered new Rancho RS9000XL shocks and I was wondering if I should pull off these RC shock relocation brackets while installing the new shocks. Image1530495459.921809.jpg
    These brackets came with my lift kit and now Iím wondering if they are even necessary.

    So should I leave them or should they go?

    Does it tip out the top away from the frame? Typically the bottom gets moved

    If they seem to bind up look at the lower bracket jks makes. It moves out the lower mount and turns it 90* so the shock isnít in a bind

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
