Poly Performance Rear Lower Shock Mount Kit?

Has anyone installed this product. I would like to see some before and after shots of how it changes the location of the rear shocks. Here is one shot from there website. Looks like another great product!!

I'll be doing them soon also. Looks like you gain a couple of inches.

I've been thinking about doing this as well. Will you have to go with shorter shocks to keep them from binding at full compression?

Depends on your setup, the install instructions cover this.

I backed mine up on an RTI ramp a few weeks ago and stuffed the rear tires as much as I could. The rear axle was on the bumpstops hard, and I still had 3" of shock shaft showing on mine, so I can keep my existing shocks. After I move them up with the Poly brackets, I'll still have more than a full inch left, and on my combo there's no way it's going to bottom out the shock. At the time I was thinking about cutting the stock brackets off and rewelding them up higher, which would give the same result. I have limited access to a welder right now, so these brackets will work great for me.

Same with me with 11" travel shocks I have plenty of room for compression. In fact since adding the Poly coil springs I actually need a little more extension and these will be ideal.
