i have the skyjacker 5' lift..the new shocks bushings are smaller then stock shock bushings... therefore im afraid its going to pull right through shock mount..anyone have this problem help need a.s.a.p truck is in shop!!
Did you get the Skyjacker shocks? If you did, then you should have no problem. There is a metal sleeve that goes through the middle of the bushing in the shock eye, it was pretty tight when I did my lift. If you need more, just ask me.
No way man those bushings should be about an 1" in diameter the hole in the shock tower is maybe 3/8" (can't remember). Just make sure that when you do install them you tighten the bushing down until there is a slight "buldge". You really can't get a torque wrench on it that because its not hexagonal.
On my 5in lift the skyjacker bushing sleeves were too small. I used them anyway. It made it kinda noisy but no problems. I have recently replaced them with the right size. I waited for them to wear out though. It was accelerated as they were hopping a little bit.
