Samurais do not have a lot of room for extended shocks. Mounting shocks in a trapezoidal configuration is a common way to get longer travel and can also help with lateral stability. This does cause the shock to feel stiffer than it would in a vertical position. Low Range’s Samurai Rear Upper Shock Mount offers 3 different inboard shock mounting widths so you can set your suspension up as you prefer. The fully bolt-on mount installs easily to existing upper shock studs. The mount uses 1/2” shock bolts which are commonly found on many aftermarket shocks.
