rear shock mounts (lower spring plates)

Hi guys. I was wondering if anyone can affirm that the '57-'60 F100 rear shocks mount the same as the '56 rear shocks. I am installing a 9" from a '69 F100 and am hoping to find some lower rear shock mounts/spring plates from a 57-60 F100 to use with the 3" tubes. Will most 57-60 trucks have these lower mounts?

Here is a pic of the way the shocks mount in my truck with the stock Dana 44 with 2.5" tubes in my '56. Thanks!

I cannot verify this, since I have not done this swap. I think you may have to re-locate them, depending on which year the donor truck is. It is not supposed to be too difficult, though.

That would be great. I think they're different on the 57-60's, but do they mount the same way? Thanks!
