Input on shock location

Hey guys,

I am close to dropping my 9" under the rear. I have most of it figured out except the shock location. I have seen the stock location used a lot of guys run the Ford towers outside the frame. Some french the Ford towers into the frame. But that's about all I know.

What I am looking for is input/info on the pros and cons of different mounting locations and angles used. Will shocks farther apart provide more high speed stability? Do I angle the shocks backwards? In or out? Things like that.

I'm going to research a little into the benefits of different mounting configurations. But wanted to get a thread started to get your take on it.



89 YJ.. My first jeep and I won't let it go. ▀||||▀

Current Project: None... I disgust myself.
