Are you solid mounting your tub to your frame?

Tabs will be on inside of hoop next to the tub to get a little more clearance out of them

Got 1 side finished up tonite. Benny mocked up new bottom mounts and the top mount is in about an inch further for more clearance.

Doesn't have to be. The bottom will allow the axle to pivot or flex completely without binding the shock eye. The shock eyes misalignment bushings allow enough movement to allow the link to cycle without binding if they're long enough.

Don't know why it wouldn't. All depends on where you get the most movement.
