REAR SHOCK ABSORBER BOTTOM MOUNT BRACKET

Post by konrad1963 » Sun May 31, 2020 10:16 am

hI EVERYONE,

does anyone know where I can still buy a new bracket where the bottom of the rear shock absorber mounts?
Are they still available from Ford ?

Isn`t it welded to the axle casing? AFAIK they were not available separately. To replace, you`d need to weld to the axle so the additional fabrication involved in making the brackets out of a bit of box section would be fairly simple.
