rear upper shock mount for '52 F1

Hey all, Happy Fathers Day!
When I had took shipment of my truck many of the parts were missing. This often makes it hard for me to figure out some of the bits. I have the manual and have searched this site and cannot figure out just what the parts I need look like or where to get them.
Here is a picture of the frame where I think a long bolt must go through. Any help to point me towards what I need would be great! I want to get the special bolt so I can mock up the shocks to the (' Ford rear differential I am installing (the shock mounts need to be relocated)

Rear upper shock mount?

Thank you for the pictures! Your chassis looks great!
Question, do the studs have the same diameter? Or are they stepped in some manner?

I would love a chance to buy one or two of these from someone willing to part with them....
Or, perhaps if someone that has one could measure one up good enough to make a few, that would be great too!
Here is a picture of one:


this picture may be missing one of the special washers.

Looks like you found your answer. Good, I never had mine apart.

Not yet< but getting closer. I found a picture of one-but still need a pair, one to borrow to copy or good measurements to make some....

I saw that and called yesterday-no longer available! Such a bummer!
Thanks though!

That's unfortunate, I've noticed quite a few items lately seem to be disappearing once the existing stock is gone.
EMS sheet metal only has about half their items still available, and quite a few things from mid-fifty were in the catalog but no longer available.

If you can't get someone to give you a set, then I can remove one of mine from my truck and take pictures and measurements for you. I would think anyone who did a rear suspension upgrade should still have theirs kicking around.

The front lower shock pins are also very difficult to find, Mid Fifty is the only place I found that had them. I ordered two of them as mine were in poor shape.

I have two pictures taken from when I had my pins out last time.

Attached is a PDF of a dimensioned drawing for the upper rear shock stud. Excuse the poor drafting, I don't normally do mechanical drawings.
The site won't let me upload the native CAD file.

If anyone noticed any obvious errors let me know and I'll correct it.

I dug these out of a parts drawer in the basement. I parted several F1's five years ago. I am accumulating some F1 and F2 parts trucks so I can start a project. I will not be using these shock studs and would sell them at a fair price. thanks
