    That give you some good info on the shock mounts, quick, easy and with pics.
    For the rear, on my Sub I used some of our shock mount tabs and rotated the mounts up to where they're about level with the bottom of the tube and it's worked well.
    Steering? Crossover is pretty much the universal answer for the reason that it works well. For something to run with while you sort out the crossover details you can run the 4" raised steering arm and it works OK. For more power about all you can do is run the hydro assist, we have a couple of different ways to go there too.

    For shocks, do a quick search on here, I talked a bit about shock options just in the last couple of days. It should be in the last 2-3 days' posts.
