Hi my name is Robert....

Need to go to the frame rail, I assume you are using 4 so if that is the case try to get them in line with the tires front and back on the frame rail.. If you are bolting them on make sure you extend them first to make sure they will hit the ground, if not then you might have to add shims to the frame to get full stroke... Hope this helps some, IF you have more questions or concerns please feel free to contact me... Robert

Also you might be able to get away with using 3/8 stainless self tapping screws, they come in different lengths and would not require to pre-drill if you have a good cordless.

Let me know if you still need more help... Robert
