Default Upper Shock Mount ?

does anyone make a good upper shock mount so that I can lose the entire upper tray? I've seen some where the tray is cut so that the end is all that's left - but someone has to make a nice upper brace/shock mount.

The Dark Soul inboard shock mount will work with the stock chassis as long as you use the supplied spacers.

I had thought about mounting the ball directly to the chassis plate (drilling out that hole a little so it would fit) - but I will look into some of the other options as well.

Drill out the chassis, pop the stock ball stud in, and nut it in place... works everytime, is cheap, and most of all... it works perfectly.

I removed the whole tray and for the moment, am using two lengths of all-thread until I get some chassis braces (I drilled out the chassis). The shock uppers are mounted on the all-thread, just in-board of the chassis; and I'm using some tubing as spacers on the all-thread to keep the shocks from sliding. It looks just a bit ghetto, for now, but it works.

I found a tap and tapped the hole then used loktite to hold the stock balls in place on the farme. Although, I am toying with making a mount out of some brakeline and angling the shocks toward the center of the chassis much like the Dark Soul mount.
