    basically, mounts the shocks to the front spring plate, and the tower that bolts to the frame.

    i've been racking my brain and reading everything i can find on suspension design, and i am OH SO CLOSE to just ordering their complete SAS setup and being done with it.

    because youd have to cut the coil bucket out of the way and f 250 shock towers are cheaper...

    If theres no coil buckets then just run ford towers...Would be much cheaper. I got a set of super duty tower i may be willing to part with :whistle: the mounts on the axle will work fine w/ no buckets in the way, you may just have to persuade them slightly:D
