This is a wonderful lower shock plate. It's very heavy 1/4" steel and accepts a 1/2" bolt for shock mounting. And it looks good.
Pros:
  • strong and well built

Hard to find ,Spedway has it

October 07, 2014
This was exactly what I was looking for. The fit was perfect and I will not have to modify these parts in any way. The next parts that I will have to purchase will be the shocks once I get the right specs. There is no way that I could have fabricated mounts that are this strong and with the perfect shock mounting system that these have. These mounts are being used to put a ford 8.8 rear onto the chassis of a 1950 Ford F1 that I am building for my oldest brother.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Needed some lower shock mounts/spring plates for my rear swap in my '52 Chevy. These worked as advertised, and needed only minor cleanup in the bolt holes to drop right into place.
Yes, I recommend this product.

If he housing diameter is 3" and the springs are 2-1/2" wide they will mount fine, but will only allow you to mount your shocks on either the back or front of the housing, not staggered, because these are made for left and right applications. You can leave the shocks staggered by buying two sets of mounts and using two lefts or rights, but you'd be stuck with the remaining pieces.

in theory it should work if you use same of the 2 side like for instance and this is just an example if the lower shock mount is in bound towards the ring gear you would use 2 right side mounting plates because when you turn the plate for in front of the axle it will also be inbound or correct location and out bound mounts would be opisite but I recommend you pay close attention to were the shock mount is and to what your needs when ording they do give an illustration and its is different from side to side goodluck

Yes this plate should work fine for you. You would need two left side plates in order to mount the right side shock in front of the rear end housing.

If the housing is three inches in diameter, the leaf spring is 2-1/2" wide, and the shocks are both on the rear or front of the rearend, not staggered front and back, these will work well. Your shock must be of the eyelet type using a 1/2" bolt for attachment.

If your 9" rear end has a 3" axle tube then these may work for you. Compare the following specs with the requirements of your car to determine fitment. - Accepts 2.5" spring - Bolt holes are 3-5/8" apart center to center - Bolt holes are 3-1/8" center to center on flange sides - Bolt holes are 9/16" I.D. - Single shock boss

If your shock is the eyelet type, a 1/2" bolt will go through it and through the mount on the plate. If your shock is of a larger diameter, steel bushings are easily available.

The mounting boss for the shocks on the mount plate number 91720249 is ½” and would accept a shock mount stud such as number 91036095 or 91036096 allowing the installer to use most readily available shocks.
