For the clamp braket, I use a 3 link mount from D&M or Smiley's ($64.00). It is the same on both sides.

As far as a bird cage, I use a floated, ball bearing 4-bar mount from Smiley's ($ 179.00 each). It is made by A1 or AC or A...something I think. Smileys also has a 4 link bird cage that is much cheaper but it is the fiction floated type ($ 88.00 each).

If you find a floated bird cage that locks, let me know too. That would be great to get rid of ther clamp braket and use one mounting point for the COE.

I don't know diddly about birds in cages, but, Speedway's clamp-on mount lets you go either way. I have used a longer bolt with a spacer in cases where I wanted mor room for the slider and had no trouble.

99EMBREY, I know the problem you're facing. If your cap to the clamp bracket is tack welded to the housing, just switch the clamp bracket around when you want to put the eliminator to the rear. I'm assuming you want to switch your rr spring and shock to accomodate a dry situation, this is the solution that I came up with. I did have to space out the bottom of the eliminator and use a longer bolt when I made the switch. Hope this helps, and might save you from spending money on a new bracket.
