 This is how I mounted my 250 mounts to be long enough for 14" travels shocks. Raise them up on the
frame so that the bottom of the mount is about a 1/2" away from the top of the frame and weld them
to the side of the coil cups and along the bottom of the mount/top of the frame.By welding them to
the side of the coil buckets you also eliminate any flexing of the mount. I have raced around in the
desert with an unpinned radius arm and sent my front end 3-4 feet off the ground and slammed it back
down climbing ledges with no damages to the shock or mounts.
