also shocks say "explorer" on them, could that mean that summit sent me the wrong ones?

My DJM arms ride like stock, real nice . I used the DJM shocks up front, summits in the rear. With the summit rear shocks, I took out my shock extenders and it rode better than with them. The only issue I have with the drop arms is when the suspension cycles, it gains a lot of neg. camber. I'm able to align it to stock specs, but you'll get less camber gain with a spindle/coil setup. The only benefit with more camber gain is under hard cornering, to help the tire stay in contact with the road.
