I do agree with TeJay that the kit is over complicated.
I couldn't tell if yours and Tejay's comments were directed at my reply, but I will assume as such for this comment. You had stated;"..As far as warranty is concerned. What would shocks do to affect the warranty. Nothing. I can't imagine how adding shocks would affect anything on the frame that might be covered under warranty..." I simply explained why there would be issues with warranties. And you're right about shocks not needing to be complicated, all they do is smooth out rebound. Most cars don't even have functioning shocks. I don't know about making mounts out of wood..Don't even like the walls made out of wood..The shocks do take a load though, and putting a cantilevered mount puts a large load on the mount, whereas a shock anchored on both sides is much more stable. I don't think I would buy this kit either.
Thanks for everyone's input! This shows the value of the forum!!
