Shock mounts

Hello
I am going to start increase the suspension travel on my samurai and am after some ideas on fitting longer shocks . I hear that you can weld in ford shock mounts , what model are they off and can they easily be removed from the vehicle . I would just get some from a us supplier but I am in Bahrain . I have seen the rear shock mounts moved inboard to get more travel , does any one make a kit for this or anyone got any ideas ? Can the shocks be moved back on the side of the frame instead so they would be at an angle instead of straight up and down , how does this change the way the shock works ?
Cheers
Monty

Re: Shock mounts

Cutting and tilting the front down mount down on the frame is the way we did it in the old days. Works fine though.

Only change it will make is soften up the feel of the shocks a bit.

Re: Shock mounts

don't know about the ford front shocks,

so I will answer what I know about the rear ones...
two places I know of that have the relocated inwards rear mount
<a target="_blank" href=http://www.rocky-road.com/zuksus.html>http://www.rocky-road.com/zuksus.html</a>
almost to the bottom of the page, $39

and
http://www.spidertrax.com/ but I get that their page is unavailable at this time,
they probably have it down for some updates....
their kit has several locations that you can put your rear mounts, that way you can dial it in to where you want it at...

as far as the benifits, it allows you to run a much longer shock in the rear, it also helps to reduce body roll and have better stability for the lift.

hope this helps.
