    I'm just wondering what are the pro's and con's of having the bottom of the rear shocks mount on the axle housing versus the u-bolt plate.

    Mounting on the axle housing seems like it might be a little safer of a location, but I doubt it makes a real difference.

    And mounting on the u-bolt plate will give the shock a little extra length.

    I might be getting new shocks and I could mount them in either stock location. So I'm just wondering where the best place is so I can measure properly.

    pro-one less thing to hang below the axle, longer shock possibly allowing more travel before bottoming the shock.

    con- opposite of above
