When I had them on Dreadnaught with the trailmaster dampers I had to countersink the back axle bolts to get clearance. As to being worthwhile I haven't fitted any to Temeraire and I'm unlikely to bother.

The last of the gen3s, probably.

I always fit these to my builds... as well as protecting the susceptible flimsy original bracket they also bolt onto it to stop it shearing off

Fitted pic -



See how the longer shock bolt goes through the 5mm steel guard and then through the original bracket and shock, thus also supporting the shock and it's mount....

And they end up at basically the same height as the bottom of the radius arm, so no ground clearance is lost -

Dave, your last pic. leaves me with a question ( sorry ). I realise that the bolts are not tightened, but there appears to be an unexplained gap on the right hand side of the shock mount. Is there a spacer to go in there or does the gap disappear when the bolts are tightened?

Well spotted Roger, I noticed that but haven't in the past, I can only think I've bent it manhandling the axle around, as when I went to insert a shock for the photo it wouldn't fit... I wasn't going to mess around bending it back, but just took the photo to show how they fitted...

Dave ;)
