Good job guys. Way to talk to and work with each other on this issue. I'm sure the end result will be an even better work product resulting from the extensive input and testing.

I never got a chance to run the set I bought from Eric. I was an early investor and wanted to support him. However, I was able to get the last set of the infamous TOMP mounts so I went down that route.

It is okay to have a negative opinion on something as long as you use tact when making it known. This is how we learn!

Ok, got the replacement set in from Eric, all I can say is night and day difference. These look clean, square, and solid. He really took care of me, and I would not have any qualms running this current generation of high clearance shock mounts. I will take a video here I. The next couple days and post it up.

Looking forward to get set for my H3. I currently have FOX 2.0 shocks - does anybody run Leaf Spring Mounts with FOX 2.0? Concerns? Issues?
What are the benefits of 2" extended leaf spring shackles beside lifting rear end a bit?
Thanks in advance .

I can't wait to get some FOX Shocks on my Hummer, just don't have the money. I can't imagine an issues with those shocks, should bolt up just fine.

Besides lift, you get my travel to allow the suspension to do more work when cycling through the suspension stroke. They are all made from thicker material, and are a lot stronger. Call me crazy, but when I switched my on road stability felt a tiny bit better in the rear end.

There is never enough money for all mods we want to do :). Just ordered 3 items from your site, please package these together. Will post vids when install and testing.

BTW, it is funny how I found out about your Leaf Spring Mounts... I have been member of this forum for few months - but never came across this thread... One of
my youTube subscribers from Russian pointed out to your site... this world is small :)

LOL, I want to clock the transfer-case and redesign all the cross members to be flush with the frame rails. With this mod, I'd gain over 4" of ground clearance in most places, and it would make the Rancho lift kit completely pointless and cost about the same. Only problem is if I have to change the gas tank, I want to figure out how to get 30 Gallons under there. Well, that's some future mods I have planned for another time and when I have more cash.

I'm not one to advertise much. I like to keep it low key, maybe that way I won't find my parts all over Mall Crawlers lol.

Crossmember clearance is great but a rancho still gets you clearance everywhere else not just the crossmember

I don't think you know just how many I plan to be cutting off and/or modifying, overall it would be the same as the lift. Minus the possibility of 37" tires.

you can take a page out of the old K5 Blazer book. There should be enough room for an additional 10-12 gallon aux tank under the rear where the muffler resides. Since I have the Gibson I was looking to add some air tanks and a skid plate back there. Lots of room.

Yeah, a photo would be nice. I think if you tighten it a lot it will start cupping anyways.

Over tightened maybe. You have a lot more thread below the nut than mine so it is definitely tightened more .....or maybe mine ain't tightened enough.

Sorry to hear that man. Sounds like you just kept cranking down on the bolts. I ran every single version and haven't had and issue. If you refer to this manual you'll see that the specifications for tightening is 56 lb ft which you can see in the first page under "Leaf Spring U-Bolt Nuts"
