thats prob why they are sitting f-uped. cut out the front section of the tubing so it wont bind up.

nice looking car, messed up cylinder mount, you need to jack that car up and check it out underneith. Is that cylinder even bolted on? It shouldn't be sitting at that angle at all.Why is there 2 different squares welded to the arm,looks like it should sit in the back ones?

The reason most people have them on the trailing arms is because thats where the factory springs sit on x-frames, so you got the spring perches up on the frame up there.You could move it to the axle houseing,but you'd have to fabricate a new spot for the springs to sit up top

^^^^ what he said. that bitch is not even bolted in... and I think from the looks of where the top of the cyl is positioned it should be in the back mount
