New shocks & lower mounts

My last set of shocks wound up being too short. Also, the mount that was originally on the traction bar plate didn't have the shock in the right position. It was off just a bit and the side load caused a shock to leak all the oil out.

So I bought a new set of QA1 shocks and made some lower mounts. The shocks are their Streeter model and should feel a lot better than the leaky set.

Too late to go for a drive tonight, but at least I can get back on the road and enjoy the great spring weather again.

I may stop by a friends house and have him throw a few spot welds on the brackets just to make sure they don't flex at all.
