looking for alternatives to shocks

i could use some opinions on the rear of the vehicle I am rebuilding. I know I could go with shocks, but with the crossmember already in place I am looking for alternatives. anyone have an opinion? The bar is directly over the top of the rear end. bags? or ???

in my opinin, u need shocks. even with bags. the shocks are the only thing ik of that do what they do. your rear would just bounce around like a rubber ball. u could get away with it if its just gunna sit around but if its a driver u need some. like the way it looks tho and make sure to mount that fuel pump down

Why not put another crossmember back closer to the tank so the rear clears it and also give you someplace for shock brackets to attach to. Then cut the other crossmember out.
