Thing is you'll never get them both down like that. try flexing it out. And see if it hits.

yup only way would be some hard whoops where i bottomed the whole *** out like that.
i got a pair of bumpstops to put on also still.
flexing it out in the garage is the hard part for me. not alot of space no engine hoist or huge floor jack. im gonna tack the mounts together when they arrive and flex it out to make sure nothing hits

425$ plus shipping. i probably could of built one cheaper but i like having the case and ii didnt want to try and piece something together usually end up with a similar price. the gauge they sell is freaking sweet. it threads onto the airshock so you can monitor pressure and add or take out without messing with a gauge.
started getting the shock mounts ready tonight hopefully tomorrow i can have some ideas stirred up and get something going.

Kool, thanks. I'm fixing to put airshocks on the Yota, so I might have to invest in a kit.

yeah. you can probably build one for cheaper but i don't have alot of space so the case makes it nice since i can box it up and put it away in my room if i had to.
the guage is sweet though. you could probably build all of it pretty easy if you knew what you needed and had a little time. this was just alot easier. the carrying case makes it nice as i won't lose any of the small crap

I bought the fill adapter from poly, a nitrogen bottle and regulator from my local airgas. About $275 total including the $65 fill adapter

Nitrogen is great for airing up tires also. Temp. doesn't affect your tire psi. with nitrogen in them. Also nitrogen is great for running air tools and doesn't freeze up like CO2 does. I like nitrogen.

so after a whole lot of bs i could never get my shocks to mount how i wanted so i had to conger up another idea
i wanted to run the bolts more or less parallel to the axle so there would be zero bind during jumping but i couldnt get them to not bind during articulation. i moved htem around about 10 times and finally gave up and whipped out some other tabs and came up with this
the upper mount is very close to binding and the lower has no issue's
im gonna run some limiting straps that will be about an inch short so on the jumps it will keep the shocks from fully extending so i should be just fine
now to flex it out
