      Has everyone seen this? What is the general consensus? I think it is a pretty good idea, not only for putting the shock back at stock length, but for getting the shock up out of the way.

      I think that`s a pretty good idea BUT ,if you`re doing it to avoid rocks you would definitely still be banging the heck out of those nuts and threads.

      The reason I did it was that with the 4 door leafsprings + shakles, at full flex, the shock wouldn't mount, so I just flipped them and notched out a little bit. It should technically give me more flex (if I wasn't rubbing like crazy on my inner fenderwells in the rear) I've put on about 350 miles with 'em and everything seems to be holding up fine. Where the shock mounts (those two tabs) I only needed to grind down about 1/8th of an inch to make the shock fit in there. Hope this explains some things, sorry I don't know any more detailed names of the things I cut and ground down.
