Another mounting point you could consider is the ones for the rear seat latches. Make the bar a 5 point in that case and you have that much more support. Just a thought.

An issue with repostitionint the shock, AND having a coilover setup to boot....will that interfere with the wheel, especially those of us who run 17x9 with ~275 tires?

The iffy part about that would be the stress levels on the mounting points of the shock. The bottom of the shock is only held to the arm by the end of that bolt. I doubt it could take the load of the car all on it's own. Most likely it would bend very quickly. A quick fix would be to weld a square frame onto the arm to fit the bottom of the shock. The top is also questionable, being that it's thin cone shaped metal with little bracing. it would work for up/down loads, but be rather weak for side to side loads.
