shock placement

i going SOA with a 8.8. my question is regarding axle placement on the axle end. the spring plates that came off the exploder have shock mounts built onto them. should i just put my shocks there or should i cut that off and put them down low on the tube. i assume i want the shocks as long as possible so putting them on the tube will prob add 1.5-2 inches i guess. anyone?

think about where you plan to wheel also, you don't want the shock mount sitting too low and getting it hung up on rocks.
