Lower rear shock mount plate

I put some one inch lowering blocks on my 68. I have 17" wheels and the lower rear shock mount plate is now about 1/4 inch away from wheel. Are there some aftermarket companys that offer lower rear shock mount plate? I would like to get one that moves the shocke either a 1/2 in or up or both.

plate

What lower plate do you have? if its a mono plate a multileaf plate will move it up about an inch - about the thickness of the multi spring. DSE and BRPhotrods make lower shock plates. Is the shock too close or the plate?

zman you might be on to something. I swapped out my monoleaf 8.2 for a multi leaf 8.5. I guess I need the shock plates to go with it.

I never really understood since shocks are different from mono to multi and lower plates are too. I have some OEM multi plates if you need them
heres a pic of the BRPhotrod plates
