Raised Shock mount position

Post by 89WhiteXJ on 7/28/2011, 11:57 pm

You guys with cherokees will know what I am talking about. On the rear axle the shock mounting position sticks down below the axle. The other day I rasied my mounts up for more ground clearance. We took some Grade 8 bolts and used a lath to cut down the hex head. Then we welded washers in place to hold the shock bushing in place. After that we welded the bolt to the old mount. I still have to cut the bottom off and will have the finished pictures.

I decided to redo this using the part of the shock mount I cut off. I think it will look better and be stronger.
