Rear upper bracket

Snapped one and will be replacing both. Does it matter which of the two holes in the upper bracket I use to install the new studs? Leaf spring standard height and using plain old Monroe gas shocks for replacements.

Re: Rear upper bracket

I would use the hole that keeps the shock as upright as possible. The more it lays over, the less effective a shock is at its job.

Building a small, high rpm engine
with the perfect bore, stroke and rod ratio is very impressive...
like a highly skilled Morrocan sword fighter with a Damascus Steel Scimitar.

Cubic inches is like Indiana Jones with a cheap pistol....

Re: Rear upper bracket

i'm with scoti. Move the studs to the rear hole and the shock should work "better." If I would have kept the leaf spring rear in my truck I had planned to move the stud to the rear hole anyway.
