ok, ill try to explain with these pics.Weld up cracks.
Take out the lower arms and use the tabs as a guide to drill a hole trought the lower frame tube. Open hole up with step drill for a piece of shock boss. Stick shock boss through tube to tab. Weld all together and get a longer bolt.
what youre sayng is exactly how thwe dunebuggy.com car was, if i remember right?
proble;m with doing that is.... the main "parallel/down tubes to the back bumper" are in the way. theyre about half a tube length, over where the bolt would need to go.
i think the pics make more sense....
wait....... what?Weld a diagonal tube in from the bulkhead tube to the outer corners of the firewall. Use upper tabs to drill in and weld shock boss in like the lower.
you mean like this????Add extra outer tube from outer edge of firewall around shocks to bummer support tubes. Use plate to tie in shock mounts.
