Just my opinion...but why is this necessary? Seems to me that I see a lot of trucks with dual resevoir shocks mounted in the conventional configuration with no problems. Seems like the bottom shock would have a faster throw and therefore greater dampening than the top shock. I guess it makes sense if you had a super long travel suspension, but the truck in the picture doesn't. Looks cool though... :rolleyes:

No offense either but this kit is all show......all the connections are single shear, the travel on each shock is different, unless the shocks are a special built shock they are not designed to work horizontally, stock upper a-arms with pressed in ball joint, etc... I give them credit for thinking Out of the Box, but this kit will not stand up to severe use.

Just my $.02,

Its all about marketing...they did this to make it easier to read what brand of shocks are on the truck. Now you don't have to tilt your head to see the name and will be able to remember teh name better!

I agree all show. I'm in the process of fabbing something like this up for my truck right now. I want something different. My truck does not see abuse so it will be fine.

I was reading there site and it said it allows for the use of long travel shocks? Those dont look like long travels to me:eek:
