dont know why you would want to its gonna be a lil bit squeeky but use a powerball and weld a piece of 1/4" metal over the shock hole in the lca and weld the powerball to that.

some cars/trucks are easier/better to do a coil over in the front.main thing, make sure your upper spring mounts are nice and solid, and you have plenty of room in the engine compartment.

hyme joint or box/bolt the cylinder to the bottom a arm.

YOU SHOULD ALSO THINK OF A COIL OVER CUP UP TOP TO KEEP THE SPRING CENTERD. I HAVE SEEN THAT ON PICK UPS BUT NOT OFFTEN IF AT ALL ON G BODIES,BUT THAT DON'T MEAN IT WRONG. :biggrin:

YOU SHOULD ALSO CUT OFF THE BOTTOM OF THE SPRNG POCKETTO GIVE YA A LITTLE ROOM WHEN YOU GO OVER IT WITH THE REINFORCEMENT WELD THE POWER BALL TO THE 1/4 INCH PLATE RE IN.
