    Posted: 11 Jul 2011 at 4:22pm
I'm currently working on and mostly finished with some front coilover mounts for Ed (sanitys) using the qa1 coilovers.

They will be a drop on and weld affair, and could be installed by anyone with a grinder and a welder. I was able to get 1.25" of static drop with the shock adjusted all the way up. This is with no weight on the front, so we'll see what Ed gets out of it once they're on his truck. Unfortunately, the upper mount is as high as it will go before the shock/spring collides with the frame; so it will have to do.

Let me know what you think, these pics are of mock up; I will have fully welded pics monday/tuesday.

These parts are all made of 1/4" steel, laser cut for precision.
 
The lower mounts look a lot nicer now as well, and I include 1/2" Grade 8 hardware for both upper/lower mounts.
 
Here's the info for the shocks that Sanitys sent me for mock up:
 
heres where i bought them from and shipped them to jason. For the dual adjustable w/ 7 inch 400lb springs the total was 594 dollars (shipped to oregon). I think the single adjustables are half that...

New price for these is $200 shipped for the whole setup with hardware.  They are laser cut now.  I'll post some new pics soon.
I have a couple dozen sets of these out working and doing wonderfully.

It really depends on the type of shock/spring combo you buy, but anywhere from 2-3" of adjustment.

No real update, they look the same, just laser cut.  Still work great.  Looking for some orders so I can do a run.

These look like they will fit a 720...is this correct?  I'd love to get my hands on a set of these, but $200 is a chunk of change...I can't stroke that lol...

P.S. today is my b-day...turned 30 lol...those would make a great present if you were feeling generous lol
