View Full Version : 4'-6" shock question
11-13-2011, 07:50 PM
I just did a 6" flip on my 95 RCSB and installed the shock extensions. The right shock (Belltech) seems like it is almost too short with the extensions on. At rest I can see where the shock starts to taper down, but only on the passenger side. Does anyone run the extensions just on the drivers side? It rides great so maybe I should just leave it. It just looks like it isn't quite right.

1 shock is supposed to be shorter for the rear but it's been awhile and I fogot which side.
You'll need the shock extenders installed.

When I ordered the Belltech shocks form Summit I told them I had between 5"-6" of drop. This is before the flip kit when I had the shackle/hanger and leafs removed which I think was about 5 and now with the flip and new leafs I am sitting at 6. Anyway - are the extenders still used even though I bought shocks for a 5-6" drop?

If I rememeber correctly the lowered stance changes the angle of the rear shocks and the extenders are used to correct the angle so they are needed but I have heard of guys who have chose not to use extenders.
Try them with & without and see how it rides.

Yes, And the shorter shock does got on the right side. It's also normal for that side shock to seam a little short no mater who's brand shock you buy. The extenders are there for better shock angle, you really should use them.

Yeah I am going to leave it alone. It rides great so why mess with it?!?!?!?
