Building first y framer this year, have read this thread over a couple times and it is has given me some good ideas. I am not real sure what you are talking about when you say push the shock in to the y a weld solid. Rules will not let me box y in, or weld the bracket backwards against frame. Other than that it is all fair game. Any help would be much appreciated.

If every thing would have been shoved back a little farther to the back of the Y and the Bumper was more Hard nosed... would have been better but I think most people would have done that in this situation good pic anyway ;D
It is a Y framer but not straight they have a belly and harder bend with both sides of the y biggest advice I can give is to remember it a Y and not called a U framer keep this in mind while you build it the box needs to be tied back into the straight part of the Y
