Ebay rear shock extensions - anybody use?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Rear-Shock-E...633480&vxp=mtr


Anyone used those? I can get more downtravel out of my rear as they aren't the correct length for my coils/bumps and thought this would be a cheap fix.

Anyone ever use these? Any downsides? Seems like a cheap fix to pick up a couple inches of downtravel - currently my bumps prevent my shocks from full compression, with these it should be perfect.

ge what ya pay for....3 settings from, like 0.28 , 1.09 and 1.89? those are highly likely off by a few 10th of an inch but you can check; trust your life to ebay repro's of rubicon express shock extender brackets and, well, you like youself /family/friends better than that, right?

They were so cheap I ordered some to check out and they seem to be descent quality. If you did 2in spacers these would be perfect with the oem shocks. My wives 4dr daily drivers bilstein 5100s are leaking like crazy so Im going to use these and the factory Rubi shocks for a temporary fix, until I but new shocks for my 2dr trail rig then Ill put those fox res shocks on the wives 4dr daily driver.

The real story here Is I am working a plan to get coilsovers for the 2dr, this is stage 1 of the "convince/trick the wife" process.

No disrespect taken, but since you can drive on the highway without a shock, or even two, I wouldn't say this is that critical of a part....I have ridden in them without shocks so I know first hand.

I like that synergy part you linked, but I have kilby LCA skids on there which I'm not sure would work with those.
