Brad, if it's ruined not worry about it the new dropped control arms your planning on buying to lower ur truck more come with their own shock mounting points on the control arm itself so once you replace the old arm with that one that will fix that small problem.
It is a 4" Toxic Drop Shock for the front. I ran the piston all the way down and it didnt hit the dent, so I think it is ok for now. I will be replacing in a couple of months, but for now, it works fine.
I will post new pics of my truck once i get the roll pan, which is the last piece to go in (I think it will be ready tomorrow) and i am done with the truck. I LOVE the 4/5 and i love how it handles. Perfect for me.
