Just mod your NA ones with some pipe. Save the money for elsewhere in budget.

IMO.

Didn't even think of that but makes perfect sense. All I need to do is raise that top part to move it up. Plus it will look worse, which is better. Thanks

I have a cad drawing of some I was going to make out of flat plate and pipe.

I checked shock clearance angles up to 2" I believe.


EDIT: found them, made .pdfs, they are for a 1.313" travel improvement over the NA stockers.

These are made with 1/2" plate, 2 3/8" Schedule 40 pipe, and your choose of bolts tack welded to the plates. The bottom protrusion of the pipe below the plate serves as a spring locator for 2.5" ID springs.
