Question external front shock mounts?

Does anyone know of someone making external front shock mounts for a 12" travel shock eye to eye?

Thanks folks! Randy's pic is what I am looking for exactly. However the new 9000 series shocks have different specs. The 9912s replace the 9012s and are only 12" travel shocks. Rancho swears they always were But I know they used to be 14", well almost.

Here is the specs from rancho for 9912s 19.375 collapsed and 32.25 extended which is 12.875" If my memory is right the old 9012s were 13.8" travel shocks. The collapsed length of all the 900x shocks have increased 3/8th of an inch as well

I called rover trax. Keith says he is working on a prodcution model for both D90 and discos. they are eye to eye and will work with 9912s but they stay in the stock location. He convinced me. so I am waiting till he starts production. It will be a bolt in item.

Luckily it, the broken shock, hasn't really affected the way the d90 rides too much

Brian,

Be careful with the broken shock. I have broken three Rancho 9000 series shocks. Everytime I hit a bump in the road goin over 40-50mph, the D90 entered a death wobble. Scary shit. That's just my experience.
