Default Cpt/ford shock tower install.

Looking for some help here with the shock tower install

Here's a few photos of what I've got so far



Tower angled back 5* is this good?




Tower angled outward 20*? This seems too excessive the shocks end up angle in rather than angled out.

Also how far down should I put the shock tower? Enough that my shock travel is half up and half down? Think they are the 12" travel shocks.

I'm going to weld the shock tabs about half way up the back side of the axle tube.



Thanks for any insight guys. I'm kinda stumped at this I'm sure I'll figure it out but some help may expedite the process.

Here is what I ended up with for future reference for anyone else.



5-6* leaned back 10-11* leaned out. Gives my shock 3-4* angle with the bottom tabs welded 1/2" from the C.
