Remote Resi Location

I have a quick question that I couldnt find an answer to.

This upcoming weekend I will be picking up some remote resi shocks for the rear of my truck. I'm going to be putting them on myself and had a quick question. Where do I put the resi and how do I keep it there?? I like the look of mounting it on the frame rail but is there a bracket needed? I was told to have tabs welded on but I feel like there's a simpiler solution. Any advice and maybe some pictures would be great!

You can buy weld on resi mounts. thats the easiest / best way to mount to the frame. or you can buy rubber mounts and mount the resi to the shock piggy-back style.

if they are OE replacements then there should be a bracket that bolts to the frame and holds the resi

don't know what yours are coming with, but mine came with the bracket and a hose clamp. all i had to do was drill a hole in the frame to mount the reservior holder.

These are the ones I'm getting. Having them rebuilt Monday and hopefully putting them on with new leafs tuesday morning. But they don't have brackets or anything with them. And when I talked to the guy at ORW he said weld tabs. Anyone know where to buy the brackets?? Are they bolt on?

I can't tell by the pictures, but do you have anything else in the rear? i.e. AAL or blocks?
