We trimmed the Ford brackets and tucked the shocks up in the wheelwell. Here you can see the top of the shock and bracket peeking out above the tire. Yea, the tires rub the bracket and shock a little, but not enough to damage either. We may add wheel spacers someday. Durham also told us how easy it is to build brackets like this with a couple pieces of 11⁄4 x 1⁄4-inch plate, some 2x 3⁄16-inch plate, a vice to bend the plate, and a drill, but we only paid about $13 each for the brackets from the Ford dealership. The new lower shock mounts cost more than that!
