Installing swingarm spools on bikes without OEM mounts

I want to install swingarm spools on my '94 ZX6. I wouldn't think drilling the swingarm would be a good idea. I could make a bracket that surrounds the swingarm that would allow me to mount them that way.

Suggestions?

Get a lift that doesn't require spools.

Confession time. Bought a pair of Grays lifts on eBay for $55 that I weren't sure would fit. Front is great, but rear requires spools. Thanks for the suggestions, I knew in the back of my mind that drilling the swingarm wasn't a good idea. I wouldn't even want to have a professional weld brackets on due to fear of weakening the swingarm.

I have another idea. I'll post pics - maybe today - when it's done. I tend to be practical (cheap), but without compromising safety.
