What kind of clearance problems? I used losi ball studs (ball cups attach to them) to mount my shocks to the axle/chassis. So I mounted my shocks down at the bottom link mount on the axle, then spaced the shock out at the chassis. No clearance problems. It does nick the chassis from time to time though, but only at the end of travel.

I made the links narrow at the chassis triangulated out to the outside of the axles. So the opposite way than stock.
