I'm removing my front bumper to clean it from rust.
At the same time I'm thinking of doing something about
the attachment to the shock absorbers.
Only explaination I can see as to why my attachment looks like below
is that previous owners were very drunk machining this.
I have no idea how this "should" look like, please enlighten me.


Cute, ain't it?

Yikes 8O What is that, looks like an extra piece of metal under the shock tube to bumper?

I just took mine off and it didn't have that metal looking piece, it was just bumper to shock tube. I'll post pics or send you some, but it'll be a while,
I gotta go traveling for Sam this week and next :cool:

The Bumper shock bolts directly to the Bumper bar, sometimes with shims. It looks like some one added that piece of scrap metal to bolt driving/fog lights to or to support a busted grill mount?...just toss it
