Where can I get spring perches and shock mounts for a 14 bolt?

    I'm rebuilding my rusty 14 bolt ff and since its a 1-ton I need new spring perches for sure and I decided to ditch the stock shock mounts as well because they were really rusty and hung down too low for my tastes. I was looking for the echobit website because I've seen both spring perches and shock mounts that I like there before but could come up with nothing but the forum page. Do they still make all this cool stuff? IF they dont, where can I get them? Thx.

    I also agree that TONYP is the man for the parts. His shock mounts are AWESOME! /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    [hijack]Do you make them for Heeps too (2.5" axle tube diameter)?[/hijack]

    Those are almost too pretty to weld to a rusty old axle...

    I have Tony's shock mounts, they're great! Lots of welding surface for a strong connection to the axletube, nice and thick so they'll take a pounding, and they work perfectly when they're installed in a position with nothing hanging below the axletube.

    Does anybody have a pic of Tony's shock mounts welded on? I am in a quandry. I cut my shock mounts off my Corp14ff because the rig it was going in, had cracked upper shock mounts. I planned on going with the MOO upper inboard shock mount setup w/ the combo truss/shock mount on the axle. Now I have a different rig and the upper shock mounts are fine. So, I'm torn between welding on lower mounts and using the stock uppers, or staying with the inboard setup. What do you guys think?

    they cater to the race crowd but have alot of fabbed parts like perches, mounts, caliper brackets, ect. that save a bunch of time to make. good luck

    I got my new spring perches from the local chrysler dealer, just ask parts for spring perches. and I got my shock mounts from the nice people at skyjacker suspension. perches about 15.00 a pair, shock mounts about 9.00 a pair /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif
