    After running my new exhaust the underside of my rig is looking a little busy. running the shocks the way I HAD planned has now changed...again,LOL.

    I was going to mount them both facing forward and angled in a little. Right in the path of the mufflers now. so I was thinking of running them on the back side of the axle angled in with my orginal mounting brackets (my shock kit not GM's idea) then after crawling under the rig and visualizing it getting all flexxxy. I was thinking of tubbing the wheel wells and bringing the shocks to the inside off the spring plates ala Zakk and others set up.

    I have a anti wrap bar in the works so there isn't a real worry of having the shocks help anti wrap ( by angling them in) I also have ford 57"s which is why I was thinking of the Zakk way.
