I would fix the pics if the prehistoric JF image uploader wasn't so awful.

Hope you're right. All I know is that there is a process for getting the upper and lower mounts in the right spot for the specific Jeep being worked on. These are details that neither Poly nor Blaine...

Hope you're right. You made a lot of assumptions on those lowers. In the three sets I've put in, we spent a good amount of time moving them around.

Also, your cuts into the frame are not deep enough. The bottom edge will end up being flush to the inside face of the frame. The top will be about 1/4 - 3/8" so that the mount leans out a bit, but...

On the lowers, there is very small window between full bump and full droop where the shock eye won't bind against the mount. That is first why the pinon needs to be finalized. Then the Poly lower...

Whether he's fabbing his own or installing a kit, he is going to need to be cycling the axles as a part of the process. That work is best done on jack stands for both safely and thoroughness.
