Has anyone used them, like the KP ones. Ordered my rear Relocator's. And want to try to use them for the front.

Anyone?

I need something fast. All bolts broke off the LCA for the shocks. Running no shocks in the front. Has happened 2 times already since I put on new shocks before when it was lowered. And another set when I lifted it.

Rather avoid that altogether and run a new setup.

Sounds like you're not running the proper length, if they're breaking. And you can use them for any height all it does it allow you to mount the shock in a different position, you still need to set it up with the correct length/valved shock for your application.

I have ran the correct ones. Most of them being the Nitro Drop Shocks for up to 5" Drop.

The shocks that the KP Kit recomends is probally what I will use. Dont want to spend a ton of coin on shocks. Limit is under $400 for new shocks all around.

I am re-using my Monroe Air Shocks in the rear.

Something wasn't right if they broke your mounts, either they were bottoming out or over extending

I think he meant that he broke the bolts off in the LCA, that what I did and had to use the torch and heat them up and pull them out. Stainless steel bolts would help and you could keep them in the stock location
