I ordered it from Savvy. Best price out there. It was drop shipped from PJ but I'm still waiting on tracking info to see when it will be here.

I will post plenty of pictures. Unfortunately, I'm not sure when the next time we'll get back up to Hot Springs will be. I think we are going to try to go before the end of the year though. Do ya'll ever get any snow up there? We would really like to do a winter wheeling trip and some snow wheeling would be sick.

Yeah it snow sometime. It usually in Dec,Jan and feb when we get snow. I've never been to the park when there is snow on the ground a lot of my club members have and they say it's a blast.

Thanks brutha! It's a labor of love as you well know!

Update: I got my lower shock mounts moved today. We basically followed Stu's write up for it but did the lowers only. I am really pleased with how they came out. I had a friend weld everything up for me. I really enjoyed following along and watching him weld everything up. It only confirms the fact that we(me and monsonman) need to buy a welder and start playing around ASAP. I still need to hack the old broke-*** mounts off but here are some pics

I got some better pictures of the shock mounts. Once I remove the old brackets I will bring it back to let my guy finish welding the inch or so that he couldn't reach. Then I'll throw some paint on it.

It is in the plans, but I don't want to cut the frame until the axle is in it's final resting place (about 4.5" further back). I really like the poly performance frame mounts so when I link and stretch, I imagine I will do those at the same time.

Ok, stupid question time. Other than the added ground clearance you gain, what other advantages does moving the lower mount give you? Does it give you more clearance of the shock to the lower spring bucket? Better ride cause the shocks are more vertical? Do you have to get shorter shocks or does this allow more droop? Sorry, trying to learn.
