Weld Square MetalShock Pockets ( Tig or Wire)
Small Stich Welds around square shock mount brackets is enough.
Note: The round tube does not have to be welded changes her mind. as it’s merely a locating and brace device.
Install cup over shaft of shock with busing above and below shock cup. Tighten per shock instructions and put shock up into the new body hole and thread the two supplied bolts to secure upper shock rod.
Clarification: The welded nuts on the back will now go up into the pocket where you can thread your shock plate into. The large hole you have just drilled is where the top of the shock is contained. (This facilitates getting the shock as high as possible in the car without protruding into the car)
You will need to let us know if you have an offset hanger or a stock leaf spring location as they take a different shock cup per kit inclusions. 85 degree for inboard springs and 80 degree for outboard springs.
Clarification: Note that there is a D( drivers) side or P (passenger side) See back side of shock pocket where you can see the degree stamped and the side to side reference.Reverse the mounts if shock is headed in the wrong direction. The shock needs to point towards the shock mount in case your shock pockets are not marked.
Install the cups so they are angled correctly towards the lower spring perch which should contain a lower shock mount tab. You may have to add spacer to the tab or cut away some part of the tab so the shock can adapt to your lower perch. Since there are so many spring/shock mounts out in the market, sometimes the lower mount has to be modified unless it’s ours.
