Disregard any lack of welding/Grade 8 bolts on the air ride equipment.  My welder will not, safely and structurally, weld 1/4" plate steel, that said I'm having them professionally welded for safety.

The car has external shocks.  They will be mounted in their factory location behind the Air-spring.

In this picture you can sort of make out the old crusty shock and see it's top mounting location.

There is a good 1" plus all the way around the bag at it's largest diameter (Deflated).
