I don't quite understand how the spacer and a brace to sandwich the shocks in between(as you said, like a cars spring shackles) allows you to get the nut onto the axle. Where are you making up the extra space on the axel? Its still 1/4" steel plate bracket fitted onto the axle with or without the spacer and brace, correct. F
It would seem to me that you would gain no more "axle" real estate" by doing this. I must be mis-understanding something.
Would having the brackets made out of 3/16" steel give me enough room to get the axle nuts back on without having to use spacers and braces?
Also, the offset bracket goes on which side of the bike? I'm guessing it'll be pretty obvious when I go to do a mockup. I guess it's designed that way to clear part of the gear casing.. ?
