fugg that!! i would want the shock tower beefed up biggtime if that was my car.. no way would i trust it to take all the load of the front of the car...
thats why the stock spring is house in the x-member*

*comments of my own opinion before anyone gets PMS about it

f*#kn oats, definite beef up, that would just push through that sheet metal, my mates wagon the shocks came through the tower int he back, definitly not strong enough for that.

why would u need to do that? just cut the top spring bucket out and fab a braket to the top of the stock x-member... im hardly a pro fabricator, but if u ask me it looks liek it would be a pretty simple task

THAT ONE WITH THE COILOVERS IN THE FRONT END IS A drag car....

if its a drag car then theres even more chance of problems.. specially if its going to be lifting the wheels
