Tubing combines with strategic sections of plate to form the upper control arms. A generous strike pad is built into the upper control arms as the suspension compresses into the upper reaches of its 16 inches of travel. Mounting both a coilover and a bypass shock takes up a lot of lateral space on the frame and calls for widely spaced upper control arms or a J-arm setup. In order to use the upper control arms' mounting holes and still use both a coilover and a bypass shock, Shawn's design places the bypass shock outboard of the coilover.
