Broken 5125s

I have broken 2 different 5125 eyelets on the right rear side of my truck. I broke the first one a few years back, and I just broke another one the other day. I was under the impression you could use them on stock height trucks? I am assuming it is bottoming out and breaking the eyelet. Any ideas?

What about going with a very mild 1.5 or 2 in lift...

I might have to do that. Just not sure how others have put these on and not broken them and I have broken 2? I know they are on the correct side. Maybe I should go with the shorter one on the passenger side?

I would assume that if you're breaking the shock from bottoming out you would kill the seals and leak out the fluid long before you break an eyelet off.

What are the part numbers?

You might consider longer bump stops.

33-185606 is the number for the right rear. I guess I could go a longer bump stop, didn't think about that. Running a shorter shock would actually make the shock bottom out sooner correct?

That is the correct part number shock you should be running. A shorter length shock will prevent bottoming out, but you also limit your down travel. Best to put longer bumps in to limit the up travel. You can bolt on bump pads to the frame bump bracket. Check your shock travel, but I'm guessing an added 2" of bump will be perfect. Bump Stops - 19-1305. Prothane 191305

Hey thanks ShowStop, appreciate the help. Ok good I am not crazy. I read and re read and re read to make sure I was putting them on correct, especially after breaking one. Sweet, thanks.

longer rear shocks/lift require longer bumps or strike extensions.

I took it into a local place, he said it looks like it overextended and ripped the eye off.

if overextended than shocks are too short...doubtful, however, with stock rear suspension. Put the truck up on a rack allowing the suspension to fully extend. If the shocks are the limiting factor then yes, too short. If not...

The shocks have almost always been the limiting factor in down travel, even stock.
