1. Did you set your frame shock towers normal to your lower links at ride height (as opposed to vertical or some other angle)?
2. Did you set your Poly axle shock mounts parallel to your lower links (normal to your towers)?
The shock towers themselves I set with the jeep sitting on its own weight at roughly a 90* angle from the lower arms.
Depending what length shocks you will be using you then need to set your tower and your lower mounts appropriately to maximize travel.
ie. With the jeep sitting at ride height while using 12" shocks I set the tower and the axle mount to show 6" of shaft allowing for 6 up and 6 down.
Granted I dont get that sort of uptravel right now but thats because Im hitting my crossmember with the axle truss which will be addressed.
Nonetheless try and keep your axle mount parallel to the ground and out of the rocks.
