Why go thru all of the trouble to repair or fabricate new brackets
when you can buy GM NOS Lower Frame Shock Brackets - .GM # 3902543
These lower frame shock mounts are now a very rare
part to find GM NOS .
GM # 3902543 was discontinued by GM in 1990.
The original GM part # was GM # 3882338 and was superseded in 1967 .
There is an auction on ebay that ends very early the morning of March 6th. @ 7:47 AM west coast time .
I would not miss this auction .
As a bonus in this odd lot auction it also has ( 2 ) upper shock brackets - GM # 3700440 .
These upper brackets would sell fast .
Sell the rest right back on ebay or right here on stovebolt.
Go to ebay & in the search box TYPE........3700440.........or..........3902543
