JKS Manufacturing Adjustable Cross-Over Shock Mount
By relocating the upper mounting points toward the vehicle's center, the shock absorbers are positioned at an angle instead of vertically. A shock absorber mounted at an angle produces a cantilever effect that results in greater compression and extension when measured at the wheels. The reclined shock position also provides a mechanical advantage which improves ride comfort on shocks that would otherwise be too firm if installed in the vertical position.
With the Adjustable Cross-Over Shock Mount installed, the inferior factory bar pin is replaced with a heavy duty stud and washers. This allows proper preloading of the upper bushing, thus improving longevity and reducing noise. Access to the upper shock mounts is also improved, making adjustments quick and convenient. The lower shock mounts remain positioned fore and aft of the axle to prevent spring wrap. When combined with our optional Rear Axle Shock Mounts, the lower mounting points are raised 3" allowing greater suspension travel with the existing shock absorbers.
