So, I have never seen Marlins Knuckle gussets is person, but I was wondering if you could, or if anyone has used them to mount coil-overs? Are the shock mounts deep enough for an orbital shock eye? would you have tire interference issues (is the mount too far outboard to clear) if you were to use IFS hubs, etc. to push everything further out? Is this a bad idea? Why?

Forgive the newb-ness...

Just a quick google and you'll see plenty of them on axles. It would be fine to mount coil overs to in my opinion. It is in the same location as the factory shocks.
