Same boat. I got an idea though. Jeep cherokees have that SAME stupid upper shock mounts. Well this company something that makes it run normal shocks.

The only problem I am seeing with that is that you lose a couple of inches of shock. May limit the travel!! But still thats a great idea!!

Is that how big they are!! I thought it would be been a little bigger. I guess 1" isn't much when you get to install a better shock!!

It says you loose 1.1" zx10.

It would be nice to run all the same shocks also, not stud shocks up front and different out back!

I used to use KYB GR-2's and they were great.

By looking at that picture, it looks like a Mickey Mouse solution. The stud looks too big for the top. I guess you'd drill the hole out bigger in your shock tower to make it work, but why shorten your travel? You want MORE travel than stock, not LESS.

.... Just my opinion...

Fox makes Class 11 reservoir shocks with 6.5" of travel. They are rather expensive, though, about $180 ea.
