Ok, have some more information, maybe someone can do me a HUGE favor
and take a look at their setup, it would be very much appreciated.
Went to the local parts house and looked at a new shock, the new one
spans the whole inside of the top mount(good thing!!) but and this is
hard to explain so I'll do my best.
The middle part of the mount looks like any other shock, about 1 1/2"
in diam. From there it thins down to just 1/2" or so bigger than the
mount bolt to go out to either side. And it has rubber pads about 1/4"
thick in the center where the thinner part meets the thick part. This
suggests to me that there should be two bushings(metal?) that mount
over the thin parts of this thing and push up against these pads
holding this in place, wish i could draw a picture, that desc sux. I
have one bushing on one side now and the other is washers, what i'm
wondering is, should there be two bushings? If so are they the same
size? I'm sure I could make one, I just desperately need to know the
length of it. If anyone could measure theirs for me I would certainly
appreciate it. I see no pics of this in my factory service manual.....
