Well, I guess that's a whole other topic I'm using these OMEs because they're sold by Sportsmobile. And I've already have a spare set of new ones queued up I got cheap from someone.

I finally ended up going with the stone-shield-removal option rather than cutting a new hole in my crossmember. I didn't trust my engineering decisions, and decided I had more confidence in modifying the shock itself. Cutting the metal shield off the shock was easy, and I replaced it with a pretty yellow boot I'll give it test next week.

Nicely done. Simple solution and it should work just fine for you.

To late but maybe it will help others. I had the same problem but after loose the tank a bit i was able to push it to the middle about half inch. Than i fix it again. This works perfect since 10000mls rough roads in Africa

That's a good idea, thanks. I wasn't sure if this was possible, but I'll give it a try the next time I replace my shocks.
