I've tried several different mounting options for my rear shocks, and even with the 4-link I'm using the stock frame location and near stock on the axle end (as stock as you can be with a 60 and a 4-link)

Other poisitions shocks would get in the way, or not function well......
now if your just talking about relocating the axle end, on my stock 35 I kept breaking/bending the axle mounts, I eventually made a plate that bolted to the Spring U-bolts with a shock stud and re-located them there.
