I got a 1979 F150 pickup. One of the rear shock absorber brackets
broke in half. This is the part that is riveted to the frame on the
TOP of the shock. I ground off the rivets and removed the piece. It
looks like it should be pretty easy to replace using some hardened
bolts. The problem is where to get the part ????
I doubt this is a Napa item. I even wonder if a Ford dealer would
have it, because it is part of the frame.
Does anyone have any idea where to get a part like this. I dont think
it's worth getting a used one from a bone yard, it too would probably
be rusted, since my other side looks pretty thin too.
My other oprion is to weld something, but that seems like a hassle.
