 +These brackets were made to raise the bike while still using the same shocks (instead of buying longer ones). \\
 +Lowering brackets have been around forever but they change the geometry of the suspension. \\
 +These brackets are designed to keep the shocks at the same angle but mount them 1" higher. \\
 +They are made from a 3x8 piece of 1/2" stainless steel. Pics below are after measuring, drawing out the templates and drilling the mounting holes. \\
 +
 +First, protect your eyes when cutting. An old helmet can be used for protecting them from flying shrapnel. \\
