This bracket then mounts below the lower spring cap. The rearmost spring clip (U-bolt) passes thru the lower spring cap, then thru the two holes in the bracket.

The stud is the same as '56, but on '56's, the stud attaches directly to the lower spring cap. 1957/58 is different, uses the bracket which is R/L specific.

B6C-18193-A .. Lower Shock Absorber Mounting Stud / 1957/58-to bracket (to spring cap on '56's) / Obsolete

MILLER OBSOLETE PARTS in Binghamton NY has 1 = 607-722-5371.

GRIESEL MOTOR CO. in Okarche OK has 5 = 405-263-7242.
---------------------------------------------------------
B7C-18132-A .. Right Lower Shock Absorber Mounting Bracket / Obsolete

BOWMAN SALES & SERVICE in Bowman ND has 1 = 701-523-3257.

No other Ford Dealer, no obsolete parts vendor has any.
Thanks Bill thats what I need.The local Ford dealer told me there wasn't any around.

Yes. The truck they came off of had a 9 inch and the shocks mount the same as on 53-56 trucks. When installing a 9 inch in 48-52 trucks could use the axle bracket but not the shock mount as the lower stud needs to be parallel to the axle on these trucks.

1957/58 F100 is NOT the same as 1959/60 F100 2WD or 4WD!

1957/58 F100's have an L shaped shock absorber mounting bracket that butts up against the lower spring cap, is retained by the rearmost U-bolt.

Dana 60 rear axle: 1954/77 P350 (P Series Parcel Delivery) / 1954/85 F250 / 1979/85 F350 4WD / 1975 thru today E250.

Not a 4wd it was a 2wd with a 9 inch. Sounds like numberdummy has your answer. You could post a pic of yours and someone may have one.

F100: All 1957/58's, 1959/60 2WD/4WD have a 9" rear axle with one exception.

1959/60 (1961/67 & some 1968) F100's: No 2WD/4WD with a 9" and Limited Slip.

Since the 9" with Limited Slip was not offered until mid-year 1968 in F100's, these trucks have Dana 44's in most cases.

1963/66 F100 2WD/4WD also offered the Dana 60.2 with Limited Slip. Some 1966's, 1967/68 F100 2WD/4WD offered the Dana 60.3 with Limited Slip.

The Dana 60.2/3's are not Dana 60's.

Looks like these will do what i want them to do. Not going for originality, just function. Now just need to round up some u-bolts and hardware.

Speedway does have them... huh. They are a few bucks less than Mid-Fifty. However i still need the alignment straps that sit on the tops of the springs. Anyone have an extra set of these laying around? Mid-Fifty does sell them, at $10 a piece, but if I can get a pair of used ones alot cheaper, that saves me a few bucks for the next item.

I have a similar situation. My 56 panel truck rear end had the lower shock mount on a "cap" curved to seat against the axle housing. The u bolts were square and sanwiched the leafs to the rear end. The shocks mounted diagonally and the upper mount was on a crossmember near the body floor. Soooo, what years have this same lower mount that fits the bigger 9" axle housing that I now have?
Thanks

Mounts from a 57-60 F100 will work.

What floors me is that no one has produced a simple 'swap plate' to use with the 9" rear axle in stock '53-'56 hardware configuration rather then hunt down harder to find '57-'60 pieces. I've seen a plate for the spring-under conversions that include shock mounting provisions but none for just swapping in a stock truck 9" housing(spring-over). Seems as if there'd be a market for them...
