Someone asked about lowering the back of their rebel. This is the easiest way that I have found. Remember the shocks are angled. So it will not be inch for inch. 1-1/2 inches will equal to about 2 inch of lowering.

Cut the lower shock mounts off. Easy to do with a cut off wheel. Then move them back an inch to 1-1/2.
