    Hi everyone.
    I am going with a narrowed and braced 8 3/4 for my duster. The car is a ladder bar and I have those brackets for the axle. However, I am having a hard time finding a shock bracket that will slip over or around the brace. Pictured below is the 8 1/4 I used to mock the brackets and roll the car around. Also pictured is my new braced axle. Thanks for any help!

    I'd be surprised if someone makes something specifically for that application. Have you checked with whoever made the brace? You're probably going to end up fabricating something yourself and it won't be that difficult.

    S&W Racecars. They make shock brackets that are cut to fit a back braced rear end.
