I just wanted to make sure they were being made to fit the Fox coilovers. If they were going to be made wider than the width of the Fox coilovers then we would have to add some sort of bushing or spacer.

Thanks!

Jacob, didn't you say there were spacers with the brackets... ?

And oh ya, take the pics after the brackets are done... ha, ha.

Thanks for taking your Labor Day Weekend to do this for us.

Did not mean to confuse you with my question. I was referring to needing spacers for the width. There are also spacers used between the top coilover bracket and the mount, which we do need and will get.

Spacer can be seen in one of MudSlanger's pictures:

What about the OEM Shock Towers, are they HD enough with the added bracing, how do they stand up ?

Is replacement something to consider ?

This is a proven design since it has been used for quite some time with other kits. So I would say as long as you add the provided gussets it will be fine. Although I am sure a custom fabricated mount using stronger material would definitely be better.

Just out of curiousity, are the brackets going to be pre-drilled for us? Or do we need to do that?

Glad to see the progress. Keep up the good work Jacob!
