You may be banned but you are not forgotten tbjs. I remember when you were looking into some mounts for your front shocks. The ones you posted may not work with these shocks. Here are some good pics of the mount that came with mine. Thought you may want to see them. They are a little rough looking so disregard the paint. I'll give em a good coat of black before they are installed.

I dont have the calipers on me at the moment but I'll get a few measurements for you before they get installed. If you used just the bar like you posted up, they may be to far down. Which may or may not be a bad thing. Just thought I'd share.

No these are the mounts you need with the QA1's. The stock shock has a bar through the bushing of the shock and gets bolted to the two holes in the a arm. This QA1 mount bolts to those two holes and then the shock gets bolted to it. Make sense?

I know but I haven't seen him on here at all. Maybe he thinks he still ban? Anyway, just didn't want it to get pushed back so far he doesn't see it before he wastes his money on something he cant use.

I'm not arguing at all. I'm sure he deserved his as I did mine, I'm just trying to help him out because I know he bought some used QA1's and they didn't come with mounts.

That mount should come with a new set. Or a used set for that matter. This part has nothing to do with the stock suspension.

Okay I took a few measurements. If anybody needs clarification let me know.

From the very bottom of the mount to the bolt hole that holds the shock to the mount = 1.6"

Between the forks were the shock actually bolts to the mounts = 1.012 (could be 1" but thats just a little loose)

Over all width = 1.250

Over all length = 4.185"

Over all height = 2.120"

Hole for bolt that hold shock to mount = .5" ID

Hole that holds mount to arm = .425" ID

Material thickness = .370"
