Rear shocks - Part1

I revived my shocks that I plan to use for the rears.  QA1 82 series, 8242 is the model.  4" stroke, 9.38" compressed, 13.75" extended.  They are not going to fit between the rear upper arm and the upper mount.

So I think I am going to weld a plate to the lower arm and weld a shock mount to that.  Then I will fab an upper mount just above the inside of the upper arm.  It looks good mocking things up.  I will post pictures when I am done.

Rear upper control arms - part 2

Rear upper arm in place.  Now I need to do it over again for the other side.
