Modifiying Upper Shock Mounts - Eye to Eye

http://www.4wheelparts.com/Lift-Kits...view_Container


The above shocks are exactly what I need for my front shocks...the only issue is , they are Eye to Eye, and my current stock setup is, Stem by Eye.

I need to fab a new mount to accept an Eye shock at the top ..can anyone on here help me out with this? is this an easy job?

I want to retain the stock location (height) , just change stem to Eye ...

yeah they have Stem eliminators for the top but they add over an 1 1/4" to the lengths of your shocks...so I would then need around 14" collapsed and 25-26" extended..cant seem to find yet...

If I could modify the top mount , and keep stock mounting location , the shocks above would be perfect, they wont work if I use stem eliminators..too long of a shock again..

thanks Owen... gonna take some pics tonight..

that would be great as I can then move up mount 2" , and keep my existing shocks (17.2 collapsed / 27.8 extended) and still achieve what I need!

Thought i would update this

Well finally got some shop time with a good buddy .. he was able to extend my towers by 2" in a hurry. Did a great job. Figured i am gonna ditch the stock shit next year so I didnt use F150 towers.. Works great now as i had 10" travel shocks from my old lift that now works perfect with the extra 2"..thats what she said

Flexed er out max stuff with bumpstops setup perfect. Still with 3/4" of shock to go at full compression
