Rear Shock Mounting Studs

Post by BBMALIBU on Sun Jun 21, 2015 11:35 am

Besides the Original Parts Group (OPG), does anyone know where I can find/buy a set of new rear shock mounting studs?

I'd have to say they are the same. When I ran those horrible 73-77 ladder bars back in the 80's I oblonged the whole and even ripped it open on the rear quite a few times.
I would just pick one of those studs up at the auto parts store and they all fit.
Ladder bars sure look cool on cars but who designed it to bolt to the shock mount for our cars?? Not a good design.

I checked the help section of every part store in my area, no luck.

This is what I was looking for:

I know, I figured it should be something easy to find.  
I went to all the stores, I even brought a sample to show them, all the employees looked at me like I was on crack. Shocked

I bought cheap shocks and they came with the lower bolts, I know I also bought a pack of bolts as well from the chain auto parts store.

I bought air shocks for my Elco, Monroe, and those studs came with them. I suppose they didn't want the shocks mounted on questionable studs....
