As the '59 Chevy used here had been previously modified by the installation of disc brakes and a sway bar of undetermined origin, the original lower shock mounts were MIA and had been replaced with a pair of homemade items (welded to the axle). To remedy this Chad cut the old forward located mounts off the axle and replaced 'em. He came up with a pair of grade-8 bolts of the correct length and diameter, cut the hex heads from the shoulders of the bolts, and TIG welded them in place of the old one's (this time pointing toward the rear of the truck. The bolts were bent slightly to achieve the correct angle, and the shocks remounted in their new location behind the axle.
