You can remove all 4 shock extension brackets on the ground, no need to jack the jeep up, not that hard to compress the shocks. Make sure you get the fronts as well. The exension brakets are just on the bottom mount of all 4 shocks.

Got them off. Shocks aren't compromised. Looks like I saved everything before it went bad :)

Thanks all for helping. Hopefully I wont bottom out anymore :)

Let us know. Its not always where someone is able to query the forum for a diagnosis and the problem is so easily identified! Kudos all!

Yep, rides like a dream now. Actually, the fox shocks are pretty nice!

From the pic of the rear it looks like your not running the bumpstop that came with the kit. That will cause you to possibly bottom out the shock still. Please verify you have bumpstops that are extended. Should look like this. and placed over the factory "pad" on the axle. The "round" ones should be on the front in the springs. The parts below are from the rough country spacer lift BUT all spacer lifts should have them to protect the shock from bottoming at full cycle.

Looks like you're correct. I have the same spacer lift and it's supposed to look like this.

Depending on how many times you bottomed out the shocks it's very likely you will see performance degradation sooner than later.
Shocks can take a full extention hit since it's only axle weight, but compression hits blow internal dampers.
