Wide enough? They are the right width for mine and all shocks. The problem is the thickness. Just but the mounts in a vise, use a cutting wheel to trim the bulk off, a grinding wheel to get it accurately where you want it, and a flap disc to clean it up.

Stupid question, my lower control arm mounting thickness is 2⅝", the bracket on the truss is 2". What do I do?

Never mind. I just answered my own question. The 2" is the upper mount.

Plenty of 8.8 swap kits available. If you have ever thought of purchasing one of these, do it. Don't wait until you bend or break your axle!
