    Duel Shock Mount Plans for shocks that use 1.25" spacers

    Here is a shock mount design you can use over 1.50" round tubing. It is drawn as a duel shock mount but if you want a single mount you can just cut it in half.
    You need to use 1/4" plate steel. 3/4". DOM tubing goes in the 3/4" holes. 3/4" OD 1/2" ID 0.125 wall. That is centered with the shock and spacers spacers and welded after you have finished the main welding. This way you can adjust for tweakage.
    NOTE: If you are using 1.50 spacers then drill the holes for 1/2" not the 3/4" that is on the drawing. You may want to consider adding some holes to the top to allow for more welding surface.
    NOTE: Some shops do not have a die that will allow them to bend such a deep Chanel.

    Final Shock Mount

    Here is the final product from the drawings. You can also use 1.50" spacers if you want to. I changed the design just slightly to accommodate them. You would need to make the bolt holes 1/2" not 3/4".
    Since it was just too tight for the press break they need to be built in half sections then welded together. I used 3/4" bolts to hold the spacing where I wanted it for welding.

    Total cost including laser cut $200.00 for the set. You can have it done locally with the drawings supplied.
