Krog,
If your 57 has the 9" rear end you must use a shock mount from a 57-60, unless you just need the shock mount stud.
The lower spring perches/shock brackets are different from the 53-56's compared to the 57-60's

The dana 44's tube was smaller in diameter than the 9" tube and the brackets are specific for each rear end.

I know clear as mud!

Is that the mounting bracket or just the stud ?

Ford Truck Parts Catalog part number and description: B6C-18193-A Lower Shock Absorber Mounting STUD -to Spring Seat Cap / Right/Left is the same.

You asked for a lower right shock mount, but didn't specify which parts you needed. Since the stud could be stripped or had crystalized and snapped, that's all I listed.

These should look and mount just like the '53-'56 ones just with the wider 3" spacing for the 9" rear. Correct me if I'm wrong??

1957/58 F100:

According to the '57/63 Ford truck parts catalog pic, the rear shock has an upper threaded end that fits to the frame bracket, an eye on the other end.

The stud (B6C-18193-A) passes thru the eye, connects to a L shaped bracket (B7C-18132-A ~ R/S = 1957/58 only) that has two mounting holes.

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.

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.
