good idea or no??

looking for some input from the sas guys

first off, I got some C gussets for my D44, had to do a little massaging to get them to fit
here is a picture of an un-molested upper C gusset next to an abused one

I know the gussets are a good idea... but then I decided to add these shock gussets (plan on runing coilovers)

Befor I weld every thing up, I am wanting to know is if it would be better to put the lower coilover mount here or on top of the radius arms?
Im worried about the tires rubbing the coilovers at flex, there is only a few inches difference in the two mounting spots
but sometimes a few inches makes the difference

Looks like it's coming along. Are you going to want these geared too?

I have only done a few small thing as of now, but I should start buying all the big money items this month

I think I am going to take out the brand new 4.88 you just put in the back and throw in 5.13 to match the front
