I relocated mine. They still face forward. When I dropped the frame horns for the body drop I made new mounts that use a heim end and high misalignment spacers. I actually found a hiem end that fit the factory strut rod thread. All I had to do was cut the excess threads off the strut rod. When I made the new mounts I made a jig while the front of the frame was cut off to get everything lined up just right. It worked out really slick. Welded the new mounts on and cut the old junk off that was below the frame. I can snap a pic this weekend if you are interested.

thanks a lot for the pix. what did you use for bushings for the parts you built? have you had any problems with the lower homebuilt a arm moving forward amd back?? the roads are really crappy around here so i am kind of worried about hitting potholes and such.

no problems at all. i just used some universal urethane rod end bushings inside a piece of dom tubing. you think the roads are bad there you should come to south louisiana, lol.
