Just make sure it's protected from any damage that could occur on the trail. Rocks, sticks, etc. hit the bottom of my frame all the time when I'm wheeling.

yeah...there's plenty of slack if your patient. put them centered over the axel. I put candi's on off center and paid for it.. after we broke the steering in a stream, the tire went to full lock left and tucked up into the wheel well. at full articulation, it hit the hard line and ripped it off.

i'm assuming you drilled and tapped another hole at the bottom of the frame right.

i put mine on the outside of the frame on the bottom of the side rail.

I ripped one off bc it was too far back. if oyu put them too far down you might have a problem with pulling tight on uptravel.

be carefull bending the hard line, and make sure it is not sittin on the frame as it can wear through
