    Thanks everyone! The demand for these must be greater than I thought. We are approaching 100 sets sold simply from word of mouth, not even officially releasing the product.

    Simply amazing.

    Can these be used on the stock ride height 19 and viking Crusaders? I have the clunk/rattle maybe these will help?

    Yes they can. They may not help with the clunk, as that's a bearing clearance issue in their design, I believe. It is possible the removal of the shock mount bind will help, though. Either way they provide much needed shock travel.

    Thank for the quick response! So the clunk is just annoying as all get out but probably safe? Is there another at least rebound adjustable that might work well work this and not clunk? I'm new to s550 have a 19 with Edelbrock 2650 TVS all stock everything else...A10

    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.

    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
