I installed a set of Dakars on my truck and needed longer shocks to better capitalize on the added flex of the new springs. The Dakar's were installed without the second OL leaf. I took the 8.33 5150's off my truck and installed a set of 10.17 5125's P.N. BE5-6248-H5. They are eye/eye VS eye/post for stock applications, so an eye/post adapter, 4WP P.N. 1079 is required. Here are my findings: The dakars and 5125's in the 255/70 valving rides firm, but is still very comfortable. These Dakars flex a lot more than people give them credit for. Notice the attached pics. I have 18.0 inches of air space in the wheel well at full droop. This was limited by the 10.33 shock. I flexed the rear without shocks and got another 2.0 inches of droop with a higher ramp, so this is definitely shock limited. This set up is a compromise, but the best of both worlds given the amount of added droop. The compromise is compression. With the eye/stem adapter installed and the opposite shock completely compressed, there is still 1.50 inches of gap between the bumpstop and the frame. Not good for flying through the whoops, or carrying a heavy load. So, my fix will be to fab an extended bumpstop to avoid bottoming out the shock at full stuff. I have been driving the truck all week, and in normal city driving I have not even come close to bottoming out the back end. I put magic marker on the shock shaft to verify the shortest compressed length and they show no signs of even coming close. Keep in mind that I did not have any load in the bed, so this will be an issue with weight in the bed. The fix is a simple extended bumpstop. I will post up what I fab next week. IMO the little bit of compression that you lose, is far out weighed by the amount of added droop that you gain. Also, the brake line bracket needs to be relocated. I used a 1.5 inch spacer to keep the lines from being over stressed at full droop. Another small issue is the lower shock eye bushing. You need to trim approximately 1/16 of an inch off the sides of the bushing so that it will fit into the lower shock mount. I did it in less than 1 minute with a belt sander. I also need to get longer limit straps.
