    Sorry all to be a pain in the butt. I gave up the idea of Ford towers on the rear. Who or where did you get your mounts to invert your shocks? Also where they bolt on or weld on or alittle of both? Also could you please tell me how you like them or hate them cause I would realy like to run 9012 on the rear.
    Thanks everyone for you help on this.

    I built my own. Cut, welded, then bolted on. I can mount mine either way, but I have 5012s now which can't be flipped...

    I mounted tabs on the top of my axle equal distance from the sides for the bottom of the shock, and just got some square tubing and cut 2 holes for the top of the shocks and drilled a hole for the bolt. plated the frame, cut the square tubing to fit and welded w/ gussets (i can get pics if needed)

    i run the long deutsch (.5" longer than 9012's) and i love them and how they are set up/

    55willy got me mine... best looking ones I have yet to see. I would definately recommend them because they are really great looking as far as quality goes.... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif


    Edit.... he wants like what... $100 for the set up? I dunno if it's more now, or what. It was awhile ago when I paid and I can barely retain info for 3-4 days thanks to my job anymore... /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
