The challenge we found at the edges was the way the frame sweeps up, making that piece crucial to whether it flexes.

Not sure where your reading that shock ,post a pic I'll let you know, mine just say fox on reservoirs. Your shocks have to be taking in and measured to level out your truck, my measurements will not matter you have way more weight in the front than me. I will have to readjust mine some as I order the add badger and winch too.
