    I am looking at grabbing a set of the BlueTorch lower shock tabs to fix my broken ones...anyone use these? Is there a problem with not have the shock twisted as teh stock ones are?

    to replace stocks with stock upper mounts I wouldn't use them. I fully endorse Bluetorch products though. Dan and the rest of the guys are great and make a good product, but if you install your shocks in the stock manner without a twist in the lower mount it will bind up very bad(or hit the frame since you'd have to move them in) and just wouldn't be a good idea. Are they really bad? Why not just plate them a little and weld them up?

    So I need to fully replace them, but was curious on the angle of the thing. Should i just grab a stocker and have that welded on?
