    I am trying to remember who had pics of a rear lower shock mount that had a "u-joint" looking connection on it.

    It allowed the shock eyelet to rotate freely during articulation so that it wouldn't bind up as it traveled through it's range of motion...... I thought it was Frizzlefry, but maybe I'm mistaken (wouldn't be the first time! /forums/images/icons/blush.gif )

    Anyone know what I'm talking about, and/or the source that sells that mounting hardware?

    Chris,

    But did you BUY those, or MAKE them? I don't think I have the time or tools to make that type of thing before "the Event"..... /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    What about a much simpler design. 2 C shaped pieces back to back with a bolt holding them together and a washer in the middle. Using a lock nut tighten it up enough so that it's not loose but you can still turn them. Weld one side to the axle and use the other to mount the shock. Just another random thought I had.
