We're using a SoCal hairpin/batwing setup.  They are really nice units, but in this case we are moving the rear mount into the chassis, instead of underneath.  This turns the batwing slightly, which gives the lower shock mounts a "cross-eyed" look when looking at the front of the car. 
We will cut the lower shock mount off, remove a little material and reweld so it points straight ahead.
Here they have been cut apart, reshaped and prepped for rewelding.  We've heavily beveled the area, so there will be plenty of weld penetration.
Welding is complete, and the area has been ground, filed and sanded. 
A quick re-polish, and you can't tell anything has been done.
Now it points straight ahead, and the upper and lower shock mounts will be parallel.
