    I need to cram a 36" tall 2.5" diameter shock in here, along with 1.75" tubing for the mount. Let me hear your ideas.

    Hopefully you have crossover steering or it will never work. The stock front to back steering arm will get in the way, since you will need to mount the shock on top of the axle tube. Than I would do something like Stephen's setup.

    I went to work on it tonight and realized that I need to wait and get my cross over on and get my long travel Deaver's ordered and installed. So once again the shocks go back in the corner.

    I think with the cross over and new springs i should be able to clear everything and use the shocks full travel.
