Front Shock Mount SPOA

On the front of the SPOA do the shock mounts get cut off the spring plates? The rear end I got from Wildweasel already had shock mounts welded to the tubes so I know to cut off the mounts fron there. Is that the same thing that needs to be done on the front? Thanks. Jim

Re: Front Shock Mount SPOA

There are a few diff ways to do it. One is to swap the plates side to side and use them as is, the other is to cut them off and make new mounts that are welded to the old spring pads under the axle. (Thisis on a plate and the bolt for the shock is welded to that.) if you look at P-works or RR that is the
plates with a bolt on them. I used the plate method from RR.
The only problem with them is the possibility of the shock body hitting things on flex and getting dented. It is a real concern and you have to be careful on placement.
I may have some pics on my old part of the site I will check.
