I've been looking at the Nemesis front lower shock brackets, but they move the mounting point up. I would like to find brackets that move the mounting point down about an inch. It looks like there is enough room to do it and not lose any clearance. Does anyone know if there are any out there that move the mounts down and turn the shocks?

I am running the Nemesis brackets as a means of adding some length for the shock at full bump (my shocks ended up being a little long). I think I gained about 1/4 - 1/2" is all.

I do like the fact that the shock eyes are rotated and don't bind under flex.

You could try to use these and rotate them down a little. I have a set here I am planning on doing this with, but I haven't looked into it enough to definitively say yes it'll work.

Apparently you have not noticed that I am the bolt on king. :D I also like that the Nemesis brackets rotate the shock mount 90*.

Same problem with shock length here. I replaced longer springs and now I'm about 3/4" too long. It looks like the mount is a little higher on them in the pictures. How long have you had them?

Why does it matter if the shock is rotated 90*? Is there some magical binding that occures to cause premature shock bushing failures? I have always been curious.

I have same problem and same question. I was under the impression that the Nemesis brackets would actually decrease the distance between upper and lower mounting points...

The mount moves the lower shock eye outboard a fair amount making up for the additional height.

I have been running them since Sept of '12. Pretty much bolted on and forgot about them. Once in a while I think about getting the welder out and making them more permanent.

I had hoped that the brackets would solve my problem all together, but my Fox 2.0's (4-6" lift) and RK 3.5" X-factor still needed about 3.5" of bumpstop to keep the shocks from being the limiting factor.

I would talk to someone about cutting out your factory shock tower up front and get a new one fabbed up. It's a lot of work but you shouldn't have to run ridiculous bumpstops for your shocks. You'll gain a lot of up travel and it will help so much daily driving or going fast through the whoops or crawling.
