Hey Art, if you look at the first picture he posted the tabs for the coilovers mount sideways, the bolts go through the side of the control arm and the bolts/mount are trying to be sheared from side load. If you think of a stock control arm the mounting points for the shock tab are through the bottom of the arm, supported against the spring pocket. This makes it so the load is better distributed on the bolts since they arent in shear and the mount since its far more supported against the arm and can be reinfoced.
someone chime in if im wrong
