I thought someone may be interested in this.
For a recent trip to the dunes, I wanted to install dual shocks on the rear of our tub buggy. My kids have grown and with the additional weight I needed more dampening.
I have a set of the common swing axle bottom mounts, but they would require me to fab some upper mounts and I don't want anything permanent. I wanted to be able to remove the second shock for a smoother ride when I'm driving on the street. Anyway, this is what I came up with. They are 100 % bolt on using existing holes no cutting, drilling anything.
I figured mounting the second shock next to and parallel with the factory mounting points would mean not having to worry about the angles, arcs and lengths.
They worked perfectly on the dunes. These pictures are after our trip as I was removing the dual set up and returning to the single shocks for the street
