09grizzly1's Alco Shock Install

I started with "old coot"s lower shock bracket design and altered it to fit with the different backing plate design. I had to space the bracket out 1/2" to clear the backing plate. As a result of spacing the bracket out, there wasn't any room for nuts behind the bracket so I tapped the holes for 7/16" bolts. I also had to move the mounting hole for the shock lower down as I only have 3" of lift. The upper mount had to be moved 1/2" away from the frame to allow room for the bolt head-the frame is boxed on the outer side of the frame above the axles and rearward for extra support for the slide. I have to thank my welder instructor friend for taking my lower shock bracket design and producing the brackets on the CNC machine and for doing the welding for me. I will know how much difference the shocks have made in 2-3 weeks. Thanks to OC for having taken the time to do this mod and to share it with us.
