Twin front shocks

What's your experience with twin shock absorber mounts/turrets on the front? Any suppliers to avoid?

I'll use shocks just as standard rears with eye on top and pin to the axle because I have those laying around in the correct specs, so would be nice if those will fit. Already galvanised would be nice also, as my chassis is galvanised also and all the bolt-on-bits will be galvanised also.

Don't think there's any difference between 90/110/RRC/Disco, but the car is a One Ten.

australians have reported problems with the chassis mounts failing as the double mounts are applying a moment to the suspension mount that it was not designed for.

they probably give their suspension a harder time over greater distances than us europeans,but its worth considering if you have a galvo chassis and anticipate long hours on rough roads.

are you looking to run double shocks or just to move the shocks out from within the springs? unless you're racing, double shocks will only make your ride pretty harsh.

2 procomps or rough country are still cheaper than one expensive shock (eg OME). So you may get the same or better damping for cheaper by going twin up front without necessarily getting a rubbishly harsh ride.

Would like doubles. Rear is also double shock mounts on both corners. Will be a heavy car up to expedition specs as soon as it's 'finished'.
