Rize Brackets PICS!!

Well i had my Rize rear shock brackets fail on me a couple of months ago.. the welds are breaking and its cracking between the bolt wholes... I contacted them and they were really nice but since they were no longer making the brackets anymore they couldnt send me any new ones nor would they refund me the 200+ i paid for the brakets... not only that but it ruined one of my shocks so i had to buy the parts and have it rebulit...

i contacted them again asking them to at least pay for the shock that it ruined and they did not reply.. i had given them enough time to try and make it right but they didnt so im just passing along the info and pics to you...

i ended up having to pay for a different brand dual shock system from ORU which works way better... but i was a lil ticked since i had already paid a lot of money for Rize's dual rear system and it failed.... so anyways.. just let me know what you guys think

That really sucks dude. I am not sure I like the design though. Looks like it puts a lot of stress in places that there is not enough bracing!

i agree with ryan i think its a bad design and its getting stressed bad.... did they give you a reason why they no longer make the parts.... i think welding it back will only delay any more problems i dont think it woul be a permanent fix... if anything it will the mess up the hardness of the metal and make it even weaker..

they didnt give me a reason onto why their not making them anymore but either way i bought a ORU kit which is better built.. it has a bar that goes all the way across... i too thought it was a bad design after i had installed it but after dropping almost 300 bucks on them i figured i would just use them...

this is the one i bought: ORU Rear Dual Shock System 1999-2004 Ford F250/350 - Dual Shock Systems - Off Road Unlimited

this is what the ORU kit looks on my truck:
