I'm considering alternatives for best way to deal with the small interference with the eye that resulted in the clearance cuts. Birdman, I hope you measured how deep the clearance cut ended up. I need that dimension to finalize the design. Another design consideration is how much tolerence there is in the vertical position of the A-arm relative to the shock eye, as well as much that clearance dept can vary from unit to unit. BTW, did my shock extender arrive w/your shocks?
