I don't have to use stock shocks, so I use 9" Pro shocks. First, I have heard that any angle up to 45 degress is fine, is this true? Second, where is the best place to connect the bottom of the front shocks?

Westernauto17,check Pro shocks web site,they can show you what the angle of the shock does in relation to you spring rates,this may help you some.rule of thumb,mount shocks as close to the end of the axle as possible,but not straight up & down.

A 15 degree angle is the most you should mount shocks or springs. Locate the shock on the lower control arm as close to the ball joint as possible.
