SOA Question

I recently bought a 1995 wrangler with a soa lift...it looks like whoever did the lift just welded the front shocks to the plate the control arm is attached to...i was wondering if this was done correctly or if i should buy longer shocks to reach what looks to me like the normal shock mount on the bottom of the axle.

The way I always do SOA's is take the spring plate from the passenger side bottom...flip it around and use it on the drivers' side top. Then the swaybar won't have to be messed with and will go right back in place. The shocks should attach at the factory bracket on the tube of the housing...not the spring plate. Now, the shocks have to be alot longer on a SOA and I have seen some scab welding to make them work before....maybe that's the issue?

yes thank you...the guy i bought it from had welded the shocks to the plate...pretty much cobbed it. there is a mount down on the axle for the shock to go i'll just have to cut the old ones off with the plasma and buy some long ones...any suggestions on brand or size?
