dont think they have the same mount on rts ones bloody proflex made it a choice that you can fit any shock aslong as its a proflex one :facepalm: hence why people have gone the adapter route. might be able to change the push rod not sure :roll:

I have a couple of NR-3's with compression rod end-mounts made for ~'95 KHS duallies that can be used as long as you have the Proflex rod end-mounts (or can fabricate one). I've done this myself so I know it works. They have 450lb springs. $A40 + shipping each.
