JKS Manufacturing JKS9601 Upper Shock Conversion for 87-95 Jeep® Wrangler YJ

Catalog #: 16030.102
JKS Manufacturing Part #: JKS9601
Description
JKS Shock Conversions provide a smart solution to the problem many Jeep® owners face when shopping for front shock absorbers that utilize the OE upper stud mount. By converting the factory upper shock mounts to accept common eye ring or hourglass style bushings, the selection of compatible shock absorbers greatly increases.
Details

JKS Shock Conversion bolts to the original shock mount using a massive 7/8" threaded stud and locking nut for an extremely secure fit. It also relocates the upper shock mount 1.10" lower in the wheel opening with a much stronger double-shear mounting configuration. A traditional 1/2" shock mounting bolt is used to accommodate any EB1 type bushing with 5/8" OD sleeve and allows easy access for convenient removal and installation.The upper front shock mounts are secured to many Jeep® models using small 3/8" threaded studs that can fail under harsh operating conditions. The limited selection of aftermarket shock absorbers utilizing this type of mounting configuration forces Jeep owners to compromise when performing suspension upgrades.
