    There's no tech article yet on any GM I know of. Steve and I will eventually have one but for now, you could see the pics of mine:

    The Suzuki section of off-road.com did a tech article last month on these.

    Thanx Shawn. Hopefully that should answer all Q's on the installation of the towers. I am trying to do them today yet so if I have any Q's I will try to contact you. Thanx Again.

    I'd suggest not doing what I did and keep the shock angles the same as stock so the bottom mounts don't have to be modified. If you mount them similar to the stock location, you will have to grind or drill the rivets from the shock mount and the brake line mount. When I angled mine, the lower mounts didn't match up. I only used 2 bolts but you may consider 3 or weld them on or both.
