shock mount

Sometime ago I saw a pic of a front lower external shock mount bracket that bolted into the panhard bolt and control arm bolt. The bracket was L shaped. Does anyone remember seeing it? JP

Also, AB sells a relocation tower with lower external shock mount. I think they sell it as a dual shock kit but could be used for outter shock mounting alone I would think.

Or you could get the parts from an air suspension equipped Range Rover Classic - the shock was mounted externally on those trucks because the air bag is in the standard spring location.

This is something that I have been wanting to do also... If the bolt on stuff is weak, what do you recommend?


I looked at SG, they wanted $350.00 plus shipping. I did not remember seeing anything on RoverTym or Rockware.

If someone has a custom pair or a set of plans, let me know.

What is the advantage of relocating the front shocks outside the spring? I am just curious>

Thanks,

Joe

Pendy made me a set. maybe he'll chime in; however, he has explained it as a custom job. They need to be measured and made specific for that truck.

Longer shock i.e. more travel
better shock choices
don't have to remove spring to replace shock/don't have to remove shock to replace spring

Mine look similar to Davids. Rover Tracks makes them very beefy. The tops bolt on and you just have to weld or have someone weld the bottom stud on for you. Very easy.

Lots more travel. I run 14" travel shocks up front to match the rear.
Also can run eye to eye shocks.. no posts to snap off. also a lot easier to change

Thanks for replys guys. I made my own a few yrs ago but am now going to need to add another tab to experiment with a front anti rock style swaybar. There is not much room to squeeze all this junk in. JP
