Synergy rear upper shock mount

Looking for some feed back on these, the Synergy upper rear shock mounts.
http://www.polyperformance.com/shop/...t-p-29226.html

They say the move the upper shock mount 2' up and 2.5" back. I was looking at using these and the Synergy lower shock relocation mounts.

My issue, other than the rear lower shock mounts hang lower than snakes belly in wagon wheel rut, is that my passenger rear shock is contacting my RK trackbar mount.

bump for this.

I bashed up my driver rear shock pretty bad this weekend and I'm thinking of doing the relocation that Synergy Suspension offers. It pushes the bottom of the shock up a little. To gain back the travel you lost they also have an upper shock mount that moves the upper up and back.

Anyone installed these?

I run the Synergy lower mounts with Bilstein 5100s, which raised the shock lower mount 1.5" and simply gave me back compression travel I was losing to bump stop. No issues. They've taken a few shots and did a good job of protecting the Billys.

hmm more detail more debate please. I am considering the lower shock relocation (evo or poly) but dont want to lose any flex or for that matter buy a new shock. Without relocating the top as well how is travel not lost? guess I need to go stare at my bumpstops.......

Stuff the rear and see how much shock travel you have left. I had 1.75 inches at full stuff, By raising the lower mount 1.5" I got all but 1/4" of that back without bottoming out the shock.

Good call. I'll bet I have enough now that I won't really loose any when I move the rear's up. I'll check this out.

Plus, you get 1.5" more droop. I've got the Evo Rockstars -- no complaints.

He did. With the EVO lowers and Synergy uppers the lower shock bushing is a bit tweaked. I need to do the uppers but I'm thinking about replacing the EVO lowers with Synergy lowers if they line up better.

BlackR6 has some monster flex for how simple his suspension is and with the shocks raised up he won't be nearly as likely to crunch his rear shocks.

I'm looking at getting my lift on soon and ran into these when shopping around. So has anybody seen the full Synergy rear upper and lower setup?

Yeah, that's tweaked.

Thinking with the OEM lower mount these would work great.

Sure, until you crunch the piss out of a shock.

Jumping in again, I run the lowers by themselves w/ 5100s and rear SpeedBumps. Work great, no lost shock compression.
