i am about to toss some f-series shock towers on my 81 yoat. i am going to prep the surface and weld them to the frame with some custom butresses for extra strength. i am running a set of jeep cj rears up front, using the stock shackle and hangar points for now (in a few months i will be going to some custom drop hangars on a beefier crossmember).

are there any tricks or tips that you guys might have for this install?? is there anything that i should be extra wary of??

i have access to torches and all manner of welding equipment. i have got the old mounts off (one came off all on it's own :p on the way home from the trail) and prepped them to the point where one cannot tell that there was anything on the frame.

i plan on using some big assed angle iron to brace them across the back onto the frame. i am also going to add some buttresses on the perpendicular for extra strength.

there is no kill like overkill :D
