Re: No Limit 63-72 Rear Shock Kit

With 4" of spring drop it should use our "A" length shock, 12.75" closed, 21" open. RH is appx 17" +/- 1"

Re: No Limit 63-72 Rear Shock Kit

My setup is just like BugzC10 so if anyone comes up with a length it would be appreciated. Also I was wondering if anyone has tried to keep the stock shocks as well as adding the kit? Either by flattening the OEM bottom mount and putting new one on top or putting OEM mount on top of new one? Not sure how much extra anti wheel hop it would help or not. I have a Vortec 5.3 with Texas Speed 2.02 / 1.575 heads, 228/228 600/600 LSA cam and 42 lb injectors so she runs pretty strong. Running Nitto Extreme RT tires, 20's roughly 11" wide. If your looking for a good tire these surprised me, they came on the truck and are a drag radial/track combo. Being my first set of low profile tires I expected them to be rock hard but they hook up pretty damn good.
Thanks,

Where on the chassis are you taking the RH measurement?
Thanks for the shock recommendation.

Re: No Limit 63-72 Rear Shock Kit

BugzC10, I was wondering the same thing and I think he's talking about the shock travel deminsion. So between the compressed length and extended length since everyone would have different tire heights etc making ride heights all over the place. I'm going to call around based on his numbers and subtract 2 more inches for my 6" drop and get a shock number for each.

Re: No Limit 63-72 Rear Shock Kit

I don't have anything to contribute to the shock length, but I have the ECE lowering kit (4/6) and like the upper rear shock mount setup on the No Limit kit here. Instead of buying the entire No Limit kit, I found a member here who re-use his ECE lower shock mount bracket and simply bolted in a new upper shock mount to the frame. The upper shock mount is actually the same as the shock mount in the front suspension that goes into the front fenderwell. Photo of this mod: http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/a...1&d=1401036485

Looking forward to doing this mod to my ECE kit, along with replacing the crappy KYB shocks from the ECE kit with the CPPs that I ordered. The Ride Tech shocks were out of my price range.

After talking to tech support at Air Lift I have found out that the kit I need is 60811. Per the measurements I gave them. Ride height of truck inside spring and inside diameter of springs.

And look at the lower mount.. it is twisted..
and look at the lower shock bushing it is allowing the bolt to not stay 90* in the bushing..
That mount needs metal on both sides of the shock bushing/mounting or at least a tubing sleeve like the upper to keep the bolt going 90* and not deforming the bushing. but that might cause tire fitment issues.. The metal on both sides of the shock mounting would not..

From the center of the lower shock mount to the center of the upper shock mount. - As the truck sits at Ride Height, fully assembled, correct air pressure in tires.... just as it would be driving down the road.

Just ordered a set from your store w/o shocks. I believe the lowered shock I'm currently running; Doetsch Tech will surfice. The RH is within the tolerance you provided. When I pull them off I'll verify the min and max dimensions.
Is the Doetsch Tech a very good shock? I bought them through CCP when I lowered it.
Thanks for your help Rob!

Re: No Limit 63-72 Rear Shock Kit

BugzC10 yes their site is a pain if not on a computer, built a 66 Chevy II with a lot of their stuff and complained then but nothing has changed. I talked to their tech group and that shock is right at 11" compressed and 18 1/2" extended.

Thanks

Re: No Limit 63-72 Rear Shock Kit

Just finished installing the No-Limit shock relocators. The instructions kind of suck that came with the brackets.....looked at the instructions on the No-Limit website hoping there would be more specific details regarding the drilling and exact placement of the upper mount 3/8" bolts....just relied on the various pictures. My ride height is right at 17". The recommended shock was "A" type, but the shocks I already have are "B". May have to change them later if I happen to over extend them. Changing the U-Bolts at the same time made the install take a lot longer than I anticipated. I'll test drive it later to see how it feels.

Re: No Limit 63-72 Rear Shock Kit

Looks good, I was disappointed with instructions as well. Like CPP products I've used I relied on various forum pics and installation instructions. Installing mine next Tuesday. I assume you just used a flat washer from the kit on each side if the bolt head and nut as most pictures show.

Also I posed the question if anyone ever tried keep stock shocks in place and putting No Limit kit bottom bracket on first then putting stock bracket back on even if it needed modification? My reason would be for extra wheel hop protection.

Thanks

Re: No Limit 63-72 Rear Shock Kit

Thanks! On the top bracket, as you can see, I did not use a washer under the large bolt head...there was not enough of them in the kit. There were a couple of extra thin nuts and a 4 washers. When you take inventory and lay out the parts you will notice the extra hardware.

To understand and address your shock question....
So you are suggesting having 2 shocks on each side. The No-Limit shock configuration and the stock configuration / location. Since Replaced my stock brackets with CPP relocators years ago, I don't recall exactly what the stock stuff looked like. If you can mount both stock and NL bottom brackets....give it a try.

Re: No Limit 63-72 Rear Shock Kit

I just ordered this kit without shocks, looking at buying Monroe oespectrums but unsure of the shock bolt diameter. Does anyone know the diameter of the shock bolts provided? Looks like factory is 1/2"

Re: No Limit 63-72 Rear Shock Kit

Dredging this up because it's worth it. Been having a set on my 72 Blazer since they first came out and I love it. I also bought a kit for my 70 as soon as I got it, but it has been on the shelf in my shop where projects go to die and long overdue. I installed it last night though and all I can say is "Why did I wait so long?" Best mod for ride quality that I've done to either of my trucks. Just a heads up though, Does not fit with the Porterbuilt Track Bar bracket.

Thumbs up Re: No Limit 63-72 Rear Shock Kit

I've had mine for several years on my 71 C 10 and they are hands down the best out there. No other relocater works like these,... none!

Re: No Limit 63-72 Rear Shock Kit

Just ordered them up.

Will be sure to share how the install goes -

The thing Iím still debating is which shocks to go with. Expensive or not...?
