Can someone tell me which way the lower rear shock mounts fit on my 1950 gmc pickup. I took them off and can’t remember which way they came off. Does the bracket ( L shape) point upward or downward?

Factory Assembly Manual says downward also. I had to recheck when I installed mine.

If you're smart enough to take it apart, you darn well better be smart enough to put it back together.
