    My Right Rear shock came loose and must have been wiggling there for a while before the nut fell off because the mounting hole in the frame is too big and egg shaped. Anyone have any good advice on how to repair that? TIA! /forums/images/icons/confused.gif

    You can what mt brother did,he had the same problem.He simply drilled a new hole about 2" down into the frame.Then installed a new shock stud which came with his shocks.I'm planning the same thing for a different reason.My shocks are too short,I only have 3" of down travel.

    I had this happen before, I welded the shock stud to the bracket. Problem solved.
