Im gonna move the shock from the back side of the control arms to the front. Is there gonna be any differences in the shock performance where i put the shock weather its closer to the spindle or more in the middle of the lower A arm? Has anyone experimented with it or read somewhere on where to put to shock mount on the lower A arm? any ideas would be helpful. Thanks Dave

The closer a shock is to the balljoint, the more effective it's control.

My lower bracket bolts in the hole left from the sway bar mount. It's gotta be positioned properly to keep it from binding. Pull your spring out, and cycle the suspension on a jack to find the non-bind position.
