    Yeah, it's a bummer. I'm looking to bolt in a bracket like you said. Will have to cut behind old mount to pass through to get to new mount. After bolting in and making sure camber is good, I will weld it in.

    That's what I'm thinking for now but may change my mind. Will probably be 2 weeks for a do anything series. After Thanksgiving.

    what about shortening the top arm? you still wind up with the extra frame/wheel clearance.

    Maybe. Not a good straight spot to cut out.

    Probably easier to mod the old top one vs the new one.

    Do you think you could cut it out of here and weld it back together. It looked fairly straight forward from your top down view.

    and just cut the mount off and move it back the 1/4 inch or so that you would loose shortning up the a-arm.

    All providing that there is enough clearance for the shock.

    Maybe. I haven't messed with it. Busy with life. Haha. The frame mod seams the easiest to me but I'm no expert. Might get some time soon to mess with it.
