This is on 15x8 ralleys or a different wheel?  Stock springs, lowered, jacked up?  A high backspaced 15 inch wheel may have clearance issues with suspension components.

This would be on  15 x 8 Rally's.  I have Viking shocks all around, I have car above stock height. The rear lower Viking shock mount is pushed away from the wheel about two inches from the stock position. See picture attached. The top mount is basically in stock position.

When you say the lower mounting location is pushed 2 inches away from the wheel, does the bracket to mount it do that or did you modify it?
