Trimming plastics for flipped shocks

Recommended Posts

Just installed the Assault bulkhead reinforcement kit, Geiger shock tower bracket, and decided to flip my shocks. No real benefit, just like the way it looks. 

 

Question: How much of the plastics do you cut for clearance? Anyone have pics?

True!

Also, come to find out, that flipping the shocks is required when installing the Geiser shock mount bracket. Resi’s will hit the bracket if you don’t.

OB has it right on the trimming.  Trim more than you think so it does not rub your stickers off.

Trim them as OB outlined and you should be golden.  It you don't trim enough you will scuff up the stickers ,  if you really compress the shocks.  

It does look better with the shocks flipped, but it is a pain in the ass to adjust the pre-load with the spanner wrench once you flip them.
