    I'm not aware of any stand-alone shocks that are adjustable and are currently compatible with these mounts. The Pedders and BC coilover kit rear shocks do work with them, though. There are some good non adjustable options too. I'm a big fan of the Ford Performance Track shocks.

    The clunk is safe but understandably annoying.

    My clunk will be gone today, going back to stock mounts.
    I really think it has to do with the cold temps and expansion/contraction of the metal bearing as when my car sits in a warm garage all week and I leave there is no clunks until it’s cold again.
    I just don’t feel like doing in more R&D
    Ford Performance setups all use stock mounts too don’t they?

    Ford performance shocks don't clunk with aftermarket mounts either or with weather changes. A bearing with tight clearances won't clunk. Loose clearances internally or at the bearing surface between mount and bearing can cause noise. I think you're dealing with a specific problem with the mounts you had.

    Just have them shipped to me and I can test them out while you're still over there for 3 more years!

    They just to me look like they will let the IRS articulate so much more smoothly and add shock stroke, I'm new to the s550 platform but starting with my 750 flywheel hp it seems like a safety issue anyway, what can it hurt if I pull the Vikings I'd still need the mounts.....I'm down to try them they look so free...in fact I wish the bottom of the shock was made a similar way...lol

    Haha I believe I called Kelly within a couple hours of the Facebook post that was made saying they could be ordered. I randomly got an invoice from BMR last week w the shock mounts listed as shipping. Called and inquired and was told they apparently got a batch finished earlier than expected so the first group of orders were being shipped out. Kelly originally told me something around 30 days or so to ship.

    No idea if that 30 days is for the next orders or not. That’s just what I was told for the initial orders to start shipping when I placed my order with Kelly over the phone. Ended up only being a week or so. No clue on current time frame for orders. It was basically a nice surprise.
