Double stock blocks like you have is exactly how i planned the rear. What i had done temporarily for the rear was switch to grade 8.8 bolts then made an additional steel strap about twice as thick as the stock one to go around the seat tube, i had this doubled up over the stock piece. On the front i have a plate, my kit came with a really thick one for some reason and a very heavy U-bolt with one inch coupler nuts, the front is strong enough that the first time i broke a rear i rode home carefully on just the front mount. I am going to do the double rear block like you have and machine out the tube sides to correct the slight bit the angle is off that may be causing all this. I will try to post pics, it was too dark when i got home with it last night.
