yeah the PO put pretty much all of his money into the rear end of this thing, and now i need to start beefing up the front a bit. i really like the look of how the rear shocks mount to the cage

While gusseted it should be triangulated with a couple of small tubes to counter act the lever affect.

Look at this shock mount and compare it to yours. It's basically what Perri is saying to do. It adds alot of strength to the shock mount and keeps it from bending/breaking off
