Rear Shock Relocation Bracket (my version)

Thought I would share my latest project on my 67 step side rear shock brackets . I saw these first back in 2011 http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=451200 but I had an Idea that I could make them more appealing to the eye and with less material.

Re: Rear Shock Relocation Bracket (my version)

The first picture is the original plans that I borrowed . Saved it in the paint program , modified it to my liking and printed up my plans. The best part is that I was able to use a piece of scrap 2" X 2" tubing. Now all I have to do is drill out the rivets and mount them up.

Got some lower brackets from member TXLSX . They will replace my repaired (poorly) stock lower brackets.

Re: Rear Shock Relocation Bracket (my version)

Got the lower brackets painted , still need to install them and the uppers . I've replaced the power steering pump and hoses last week, replacing steering gear box this week. And working on a different shifter .

Size:  11.4 KBThanks, still working on steering gear, had to order another, and another, they tell me at tech service that that's the right part in the box but I have two cores that have a smaller shaft on the input . So I ordered a bigger steering coupler to get it put back together next week( I hope ).

Re: Rear Shock Relocation Bracket (my version)

Well the truck is back together. including my shifter . I had to get rid of the mustang shifter that had been given to me eleven years ago. Now I have Hurst Pro-matic 2 ratchet shifter built into the floor. Here's a link to my shifter box build. http://67-72chevytrucks.com/vboard/s...d.php?t=767127
