Looking for an old thread I can't find.

Hey guys,

I seem to be internet deficient today. I'm looking for a thread I found on here once regarding the Front Shock Mounting Plates on a 76 J20. I believe it said that plates from a 1987-1993 F250 will work and bolt right on. Am I remembering right, or is there some modification I will have to make to the frame? Does anyone know the part number or where I can get a front mounting plate for the old thing? I'm having trouble removing the old ones too- do I have to cut into the frame rail to get at the bolts on that thing? Sorry for so many questions at once. I just haven't touched the suspension yet, and it's gotta change.

I remember the thread you're refering to, and I have not been able to find it for years. At one point, the database for IFSJA was pretty rough, and a lot of posts just disappeared as they went corrupt, I'm guessing that was one.

I believe you're on the right track, though. I'm pretty sure it was mid 80s F-250 frame towers that fit. The thread I'm thinking of detailed using the dual shock towers in place of ours to get quad shocks up front.

As far as removing your old towers, I think they share some of the motor mount bolts, so you might need to look at the motor side of the frame as well. They were never welded like the motor mounts, that I am aware of (could be wrong, though).

I think it was in the for sale section, it was a factory dual shock kit for the front, maybe rancho set up if I remember right, he wanted $150??
