    Anyone know where I can get the "least expensive" weld-on shock brackets for a 14 bolt FF? I don't need anything elaborate, just cheap.

    Thanks

    The least expensive route would be to make your own /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    How about torching some off an axle?

    Ya, I guess I could go use my friends plasma cutter and chop some out. I was lookin' for something easier though... guess I'll do it the hard way. /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif

    I would think that the easiest and cheapest route would be to just torch some off an old axle. Thats what I did, but I still havent got around to welding them onto my axle./forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Short piece of (roughly) 2" wide 1/4" strap stock, something to cut it with, angle grinder, something to weld with, the appropriate drill, and 2 hours tops should cover it...
