good thinking on the adjustable shock mounts.....if it were me, I'd be moving them as far outboard as possible for more stability on the street.....

^ wasn't talking about the adjustability.....more that the shock bracket might interfere with being able to remove the bolt from the lower control arm bracket....

^ might want to try that with the brakes installed first.....remember all that adjustability is so you can quickly change things at the track etc.....if its a pain to do and takes three people to remove a bolt, then things get tricky....

yeah you are right on that, but also hopefully the lca angle doesn't need to be changed very often once the car is dialed in, I guess track conditions also will play into that as well.
