      I'm sure I have some shock plates. On the lower shock mounts look at ruffstuffspecialties.com They have a variety of weld on styles. Or just drill it out and weld in a grade 8 bolt with a smooth edge.

      That sounds like a very good idea. I truly appreciate you taking the time to reach out and help with a great suggestion. I’m actually stuck with what my mechanic says that is he is only willing to weld on another part because he does not have the...

      Driver side rear shock upper bolt-on mounting plate and lower axle bracket with flange have rusted out. I need a viable top plate and a sawed off axle bottom mount bracket which I can weld to my axle. Thanks for reading hope you have

      Sorry for the confusing picture that round thing is where the flange was attached that the end of the lower part of rear shock would go over to secure it to the axle. came apart well going 65; pretty hellish experience because it tore up the...

      This is the bracket seen from where the flange where the shock attaches is supposed to be. Drilling out and adding a new bolt alone will not be sufficient to properly secure the shock to the axle

      Hi thank you for getting back mine is locked but I think it may be doable to retrofit a non axle? however I’m really trying to avoid an axle swap if you have a mangled one that you’d be willing to chop the lower shock mount bracket off of that...
