I don't agree what are you going to pay for the relocator bracket when or if BT ever comes out with one? I doubt they are just going to ship them for free.. I have bought four Mcgaughys kits in the past five years and have never had a problem with the factory shocks.. I dont think you are giving these oem shocks a chance they are much better than they were in the past. I have worked in chrysler parts on the tech counter for 15 years and have never seen one fail on lowered applications.. My father has a 2008 Ram with almost 90,000 miles with a Mcgaughys 2-4 drop still has the same factory shocks never had one fail.. The only time I personally have seen one fail is on extreme drops or airbag dropped trucks. Had a 1998 frontier with airbags in the front relocated Beltech shocks and they failed because I drove it to low all the time and the shocks would bottom out.. anyway didn't mean to thread jack you I just don't understand why everyone here is so behind Beltech I agree they are a great company I have used there kits in the past just think they missed the boat on the Rams....
