I am in the process of replacing my core support on my '63 F100 unibody and I can't find the correct kit for bolting the support to the frame. I noticed in the shop manual that the unibody mounting kits have a spring which has to be tightened down to a certain height, but all of the kits I have seen don't have this spring in them. I did find variations of the part number: C1TZ-8125-S or else the suffix KT, but the pictures didn't show what I need.
I suppose I should just order some hardcopy catalogs from the different suppliers, because I spent over three hours last night trying to find the correct kit online or on their downloaded catalog. I have the hipo parts cd too and couldn't find it in there either. Guess I'm just too "old school" - I need the catalog in my hand....
So if anyone has the correct kit number or can steer me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you very much....
If you want the springs you need the old ones or source some from mcmaster carr.
Use a longer bolt on the 61 to 64 kits currently produced.

63 F100 Uni Custom under construction 4" off the pavement and built to drive.

Thank you so much for your help and information. I only wish I had posted here first last night rather than spend 3 hours looking for nothing....
BTW - do you know the reasoning why only the unibody has the spring?
