The lower axle mounts were mocked into place, and tack welded once the measurements determined where they should end up. The suspension cycled cleanly with the Bilsteins, but this suspension configuration was short-lived. The very day I finished the installation, I handed the truck off to a suspension company who cut off the shocks' lower mounting tabs and MIG welded their own tabs onto my mounting perches. Since I made these mounts there have been four different suspension kits in this truck, and none of the rear shocks subsequently mounted were the correct lengths for the mounts. Jerrod recently slammed the truck hard in the desert, and the too-long rear shocks snapped off the MIG-welded lower rear tabs. Why was this effort a waste? Just like the Sport Trac, I expended a lot of personal effort on a truck that I had to hand off. I would have been better off finding a shop to do the work while I took the photos.
