when you put on caltracs do they relocate your shocks inside of the leaf spring?
It can go either way based on the above statement^^^^^^^^
That won't work unless you fabricate a new cross member for the upper shock mount. If you tried moving the lower shock mount inside the leaf spring without relocating the upper shock mount, the shock will hit the frame.That is what I would need in order for my tires to clear the lower portion of the shock absorber.
Is there a weld in set-up for this already available to relocate the upper shock mount or do I have to make my ownThat won't work unless you fabricate a new cross member for the upper shock mount. If you tried moving the lower shock mount inside the leaf spring without relocating the upper shock mount, the shock will hit the frame.
Just found a kit that Year One sells, its a bolt in kit designed to move the rear shock over to allow for a 275 rear tire to clear and works with stock suspension the part number is a BG959 1968-1974 Nova models for $269
check it out and let me know what you guys think.
I was planning on bolting it in and welding on top of it for added strength.The problem I have is I already purchased 2 lakewood rear drag shocks for my car to use and I'm not sure the shocks will work with the new upper shock crossmember, the shocks have the stock rod going through the top and the 2 bolts that bolt them in, I think the relocation kit has a different style upper shock set-up than the factory install. I could make my own, but I am real insecure with making my own stuff, I would rather purchase something that has been tested already " although I know the price is rediculous " if it fails for some reason or another the manufacturer of the product would be responsible, if I make it and it falls apart then I become the dummy:horse: and I plan on putting some serious ponies to rear wheels understand? but I do thank you for the offer of making me one and I appreciate the help, you should make your own relocation kit and market it, for the right price I am sure you will make fortune:thumbsup:
