    Still got the wrapping paper on your shock mounts. :D Let us know how those holes line up with the ones in your frame, I had to "add" a few holes to get my b-52 to bolt up, but all in all the look really nice and were easy to put on. My rivets came out really easy, just heated them up with a torch red hot and hit them with the air chisle. Then I took a wedge and hit the bracket between the hanger and frame, the brackets almost fell off. Took me all of about an hour to get both sides off. I do have pictures of my b-52, I still want to take more pictures of the bracekts so you guys can see how it came out.

    Hey thanks for the tips on the install. I'll be knocking out all those rivets this weekend.:D

    I picked up the shock mounts for 20.96 ea at ford-parts.com
    Shipping was about another 9-10 bucks.:D The local F*rd Stealership wanted almost 40 apiece and said they wouldn't be available for almost 3 weeks.
