This is what you have been waiting for! These are an offshoot of our 3 Legged Link Brackets, you will see the similarities. We wanted to make a bracket to eliminate the Single Shear of Shock Mounting Posts found on so many vehicles (Blazers, Land Cruisers, and lots of different Jeep models). I am very happy with the results. With these you can mount 1 1/4", 1 1/2", or 1 3/4" eye Air shocks or Standard shocks the second tab is a floater that you decide where it needs to be. It also has a "floor" for additional protection and rigidity and the floor has 2 drain holes so you don't collect anything. It is designed to mount on either the leading or trailing edge of the axle tube so you can adjust your WB and keep the shock as low & as long as possible at the same time. They are also real handy when fitting everything on the front axle on a linked front end. With wider shocks weld the nut to the floating tab so you can get at it.
Perfect fit for the singe shear shock mounts of many vehicles. Put a couple on my taco project and I see no issues with them lasting a very long time. Will also protect the bottom of the shock.
Cheap, economical, practical, they work.

No BS here, these do exactly what they state they do. I used these to relocate my XJ Dana 44 shocks. Sure, I bet they could be better, but could they be better for $26? I think not. No problems with getting a nut behind the rear ear, but as stated I am also using Jeep shocks which are not as wide as some Chevy or Ford fullsize ones.
Very nice brackets

I used these to install a Chrysler 8.25" rear axle in my Cherokee. I hated the factory mounts which hung below the axle about 3". The brackets fit well and are quite sturdy. I had no issue with fitting the nut on the inside of the bracket as a previous reviewer states, but I can see there could be an issue if using larger shock bushings like those used on full size trucks. (Jeep shocks use 1.5" wide bushings and many fullsize use 1.75" wide bushings) My only complaint is that they need to be mounted inside the inner axle u-bolt instead of stradling the u-bolt like the factory shock bracket location. This (very slightly)reduces the angle at which the shock operates.
Great concept but....

The axle radius should be the other direction so the mount can be located toward the top of the axle tube. I can see the need for the radius as made but a simple cad change would expand the usefulness if you offered both choices!

The bracket was well made. But the distance from the tube radius to the inside shock ear is too short. I tried to mount these to an axle tube and could not get a nut between the tube and the inside ear. The shock ear needs to be 1/4" farther away from the tube radius.
