yes or no?

Its prolly best to use them.

I pretty sure you have to use the bottom mounts or a mount that rotates the bottom 90 degrees from stock. Otherwise I'm not sure whether there would be enough room to allow the shock to sit at a diagonal like that without stressing the bolt and bushings.

I actually really like the Tera lower mounts. I didn't want to buy them so I jus made my own copy of them. They help keep the shock from binding and allowing it to move some while your suspension cycles. I don't run the Tera shock bar anymore now that I run outboarded Ford shock towers but I still use my lower mounts to allow the shock to move some and not bind.

See. Don't mind the ugly welds, my welder was being a *****.

That's what Anti told me. The thing is, I bought the MORE 8.8 shock perches and they are cut at a bevel meaning they cant one way already. Tomorrow I'll snap a pic of why I thought I could get by without them. They angle perfectly to match up with the upper bar and the lower mount looked superfluous...

Seems to be the consensus. Thanks gents!

I got them in and welded on and got everything hooked up. MUCH better than it was. I actually have (gasp!) travel back in my shocks lol.

I'll update my build thread with all the pics of yesterday and today's progress...there's a lot haha! But later...for now it's time to crush a beer or two and get to wet sanding...

Cheers

Haha I never thought of that! Not a bad idea haha. They turned out awesome too today! Put them to good use on the trail. They're just some from wallyworld that are supposed to strap your waist like a fanny pack.

Speaking of trail... Pics from today. Awesome time. Taylor, you gotta roll next time man!!

Haha it's definitely strong but it is ugly lol. That's before I ground it down smooth. My welder was running out of gas and it was my last welds for the project so I just finished it lol.

you'd love to hear that I've seen a vehicle that had to be towed in after a serious wreck get an inspection sticker because the insurance company required it to be renewed even though it wasn't expired...the system is flawed. We're not saying it shouldn't exist, just that it's bull****.

on another note, exhaust hanger broke off during a lakeside trail excursion. No big deal, just gonna rig it back up so it doesn't happen again, thing is rattling something fierce.
