yea shock hoops / coil mounts

then we are using tube to brace the back mounts they will be tied together. and we are using the tube as a cross member under the engine they will be tied into where the track bar/panhard bar mount is welded on for strength.

Sounds like a good call! I doubt you'll need anything like that, but it'll be a nice peace of mind bit. Should stiffen up the chassis pretty well also.
