Once the 3⁄8-inch-thick swaybar mount and 3⁄16-inch-thick gusset is welded in, our attention turned to the lower shock mount. The shock mount is also behind the axle protected by the axletube, but you might have to add spacers to keep the shock vertical, depending on how much you moved your axle forward. Off Road Evolution welded-in the 1-inch spacer and we ended up adding the 1⁄2-inch spacer as well when we installed the axle. While we didn’t notice it in the instructions, it would appear that the shock mount was intended to be welded to the lower control arm mount for added strength so that too was done at this time.
