Question New Suspension Blocks Oil Filter

Hey Guys, So I ran into a little problem.
I have a 2014 6.7 and recently had a Fabtech 4 link 7 inch lift with Dirt Logic res. shocks installed and the new shocks completly block the hole through the wheel well to remove the oil filter.

what are my options?

Remove your intake tube to your turbo and go in from the top

Don't know if it was at '13 or '14, but the front suspension changed with a new crossmember that restricts access from underneath.

I've read about people having problems with the oil filter relocate kit. You don't need one, just remove the intake tube to get to the filter, half the people do that anyways

2015 2500 Laramie ccsb CTD, Lots of thuren goodies, fox shox, bmf novakanes, amp steps, lost a few parts underneath, and the list goes on......

intake tube from the top is my new way.

i get 4 oil changes a year for free so i wonder how the dealership is going to feel about having to go through the top. LoL.
