Notice how the outside of each shock mount is not supported by any brackets or anything? Now, notice how one large bolt secures this piece to the top of the front axle's inner "C". Conventional wisdom advises mounting any weight-bearing coilover shock in a double-shear manner (in a way that captures both sides of the shock eye/bolt). At this point we stopped the installation and asked for clarification from Pro Comp's engineers.
