Only time I really have seen problems with the horizontial stud mount is when they were a bolt in type of installation and they had managed to loosen up and the ratcheting motion tore a hole in the frame, and the other time was due to a shock that seized up.
Unlike a coil over set up, which I usually deal with, your shock setup is not carrying the load, just dampening it.
Only reason I mentioned the shock installed height is for anyone else that planned to do this would know.
10-4 my man. It's all good.
I knew exactly where you were coming from.
Two things I will never understand, no shocks on trailers, and not balancing the damn tires.
This would cost manufacturers less than 300 bucks to do and I think most people would pay it.
