    So you’re saying the Vikings are independently adjustable? Might have to check them out.

    This thread looks awesome I was wondering where to find these viking shocks for the rear, and what front coil over set up you are going to be running with the new mounting points for the coil overs.(new to the x scene but know a little about vehicles)

    sohcmydohc, lazevedo and chris griteman.
    If my new fabricator can give us a price of $200 are you all willing to give $50 non refundable deposit?
    I not trying to rip anyone just trying to help others out because God knows I need help once in a while? Hmm... a lot lately with surgeries I've been through. :(

    Oh, guys please ask around because the more we can get to buy in the better price we all get!
    So please ask around and let me know!

    Viking front shocks part number C210

    So far big improvement in ride I don't get the choppiness I could hear and feel in the front end.

    I also inspected the slick and dirty upper plates and they are in like new condition.

    What happened to the other style you had made? I'm glad you're not seeing any degradation of the top hats but they still look sketchy AF to me for the long term...

    I gave them to a friend to test out.

    I actually don’t like the other style. The Xii style brackets look like they will bend in th center. All the pictures I see of them they are actually slightly bent.

    The 5/8 bolt and smaller hole will help but even .02 of an inch deflection and the bolt will be stuck. But I could be wrong IDK.

    Im surprised a "stance picture" of the truck hasn't been posted.

    So this truck has the DJM control arms w/ the coilovers? How does it ride/sit?

    Thanks,

    So with the coilovers, the DJM kit actually sits higher than usual?

    I have the coil overs cranked up. So I have about a 2.5 in drop in the front. I would go lower but if I put the 3 inch blocks in the back I bottom out a lot.

    I would notch the frame as I have the notch, but in Hawaii you won’t pass recon if you cut the frame.

    Could you please make a new thread for a list of people that want to buy the mount. I would like to update this in the future, it is already moved off of its original topic allot. I do hope people purchase the mounts.

    Also if you do end up purchasing a top mount I have a set of QA1's for sale if anyone is interested. Located in Hawaii
