Help with SPOA

I recently purchased a 88 suzuki with a homemade spring over axle lift. The only problem is when they moved the plates to the top the shock mounts are too high. I have solved the problem in the front by fabricating taller shock towers, but this is not possible on the rear.
What should I do on the rear? Make shock mounts that weld to the bottom of the axle housing ???

Re: Help with SPOA

check out sky mfg or roadless gear. they have an upper rear shock bracket that allwos you to tilt them inwards a bit (in three different positions) to allow for longer shocks.

If I move the top of them inward, they will hit my 2" exhaust.

Re: Help with SPOA

I have a 2" exhaust also and one of the three positions would cause them to hit, but the other two dont.

You could always move your exhaust...

Re: Help with SPOA

I got another set of lower spring plates with the the shock mounts and used them on the bottom and the original plates on top of the springs. I use 1/2" dia grage 8 bolts instead of the U-Bolts. This way I don't have to relocate the shock mounts.
I had one of the top shock mount reloacators, but the truck drove worse.
