Dear Welder Series…
Hi I bought a tube front axle for my model a street rod and it has welded on hair pin brackets but nothing to mount a shock. Do you sell a lower bracket that welds to or bolts to axle or hair pin mounts for shocks? thank you
There are a couple of ways you could mount shocks to the tube axle…
Go to our web site, http://www.welderseries.com/
blog/, and type “threaded tube” in the search box on the right side of the page. This will bring up a lot of threaded tubes and some parts that are related to them. A threaded tube, with the appropriate thread size, could be welded to your axle as the lower shock mount.
Another way would be to use the sway bar mount, http://www.welderseries.com/
blog/online-store/sway-bar- mount/ , welded to the axle. (It doesn’t know it’s a sway bar mount and will be quite happy known as a shock mount on your rod.)
There are several other brackets in our store that could also be “shock mounts”, with some imagineering.
If you would rather mount the shock to the hairpin, please reply with the diameter of the lower shock eye and the bushing hole size. I’ll think about brackets that would work with that.
Thanks for looking at Welder Series parts.
