Q & A

What's in the Box

These upper shock mounts are 10-1/2" from the bottom edge to the centerline of the shock hole. The shock hole is tapered from both directions and will either require our 535-AK35 shock stud kit, or be drilled out to 5/8". 

These mounts are a cut-to-fit item and require welding and fabrication skills.

works good

September 15, 2014
Whatever its coated in needs to be ground off to get a good weld, not a very good idea for something designed to be welded on.
Pros:
  • Strong
Cons:
  • bad coating
Yes, I recommend this product.

Great product

November 09, 2010
Bought these to install shocks on a 34 ford high boy. The length was almost perfect. Strong design with minimal flex. I only had to fabricate the attachment to the frame. Tie rod end kit is almost a must. THIS DOES REQUIRE FABRICATION but is a great time saver.
Pros:
  • Reduces fabrication time
Yes, I recommend this product.

The center of the mount hole is 1 3/8" out from the welded on T plate. It is 10 1/2" tall from base to the center of the hole.

Do you have bolt kit that works for these towers? I have the t bucket short shocks and the diameters are different. I tried using the universal studs you carry but it leaves a lot of play and not enough room to put a decent nut on it.
