    I'm looking for a new rear shock mount (upper by the frame). I went to NAPA and they said go to the dealer. The dealers said it comes with the rear shock (no seperate p/n). I went back to NAPA and they said they come with the rear shock as well (no seperate p/n). I then went to Autozone and they had a shock mount in the "HELP" section but it was meant for a car or steering stabilizer as the portion that would mount to the frame is a much smaller size. It there anyone out there that sells rear upper shock mounts (and p/n). Any help is appreciated. I'm looking for 6 for a special application.

    TIA

    I bought one many moons ago for my 82 from my local dealer. Didn't have to buy the shock or anything else. If I get a few moments here I will call them and get a part # for you...

    Sorry, I should have specified. Yes it is a p/u with a double ended bolt that goes through the frame (not rivited on).

    Well some shocks come with new mounting studs like you'll need.... If you cant find one, I think I have an extra one in my tool box. You have have it for free, just pay shipping. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Which years are the same as what you are dealing with? (is this for the '78 or '80?)

    I'm 99% sure my '86-88 parts manual will have them in it, just not sure if they are the same as what you need. I know at some point they went to the press in style.

    It was for the 80 but identical to the 78 (I also looked at a friend's 87 K10 and it was the same). I ended up Calling Steve Frisbee as MOO and he stocks them (for a more than reasonable price). I ordered them through him, but I would still be interested if we (CK5) could come up with a p/n for future reference.
