Shock Adapter Eyelet to Bar Style

$79.00
Shocks
Description:

This Eyelet-to-bar style adapter bracket can be used to retain your original van front shocks during your 4x4 conversion or our recommended Bilstein 5100 version. Our conversions currently use a 1999.5-2010 Silverado 2500/3500 lower control arm which typically has an eyelet on the bottom, whereas the vans have a bar-style.  

The GM 4x4 van conversion requires a fairly short shock. There are limited options and many come with bar-style lower mounts which don't fit the Silverado lower control arm used in our conversions.

If you're searching for shocks that may fit the eyelet-style truck bracket, just make sure the compressed length on the shock is about 10.5 inches.
