All over the interweb. Try;

Shock Brackets & Shock Tabs - RuffStuff Specialties

Shock Mount, Bracket, Tabs - Arnott Air Suspension Systems

Shock Brackets & Shock Tabs - Barnes4WD.com - Off Road Fabrication Parts

Poly Performance JEEP/TRUCK & BUGGY*::*Brackets-Tabs-Trusses*::*Shock Mounts - 4X4 Off-Road Parts, JK Synergy Suspension Systems, Fox Racing Shox, Beard, CNC Brakes, Johnny Joints®, Currie Enterprises, Edelbrock, Pit Bull Tires, Ramsey Winch, ARB, Wa

Shock Tabs, Hoops, Mounts | Custom Fab Brackets & Tabs | WFOConcepts.com

Just find the ones you know will fit and weld them where ever you like. I'm relocating the upper and lower mounting locations to facilitate longer shocks.

I put on 5 new stickers, and drove 70 on the highway, which in a 2.5 is a feat in itself.

OK, The 8.8 axle tubes have 3.25" diameter which means a 1.625" radius. You know that you have to relocate your spring perches, wether you go SOA or SUA lift? Once you have your axle hung, figure out where you need to mount your shocks. That should tell you what kind of mount to buy.

Agreed, I do know they differ. But some companies sell exactly what you need like m.o.r.e. Wether you do a SOA or a sua But they evidently don't sell them. But I guess more stopped selling the shock mounts, which is weird because they sell everything else.

Found my vibration. The clip for the u-joint cup came out of the front u-joint on my rear driveshaft. Been looking everywhere for the vibration. Had tires ballanced twice. Checked all ball joints. To today thought I would check the trans mount. Then I found it. Cup was out a bit pass the yoke. Replaced joint and now it rides as smooth at silk, well a JEEP wrapped in silk that is.

Took on Broken Arrow for the first time and survived! Mind you we're 100% stock on the suspension.... Tip, first time out on Devils Staircase, bring a change of pants.

This does not count as "today" but over the past three days I have installed a new exhaust manifold, power steering pump (pulley too), and a nice Clarion sound system. I've been quite greasy and had sweat dripping into my eyes the entire time.

Feeling quite accomplished.
