Dave here are some pictures of the cable coming out of the backing plate to the frame,how they mount to the frame,a couple different angles of the main bracket and one of were the parking brake cable bolts to it.Gator buy the 2 inch wide perches and do it right or you will never have peace of mind.You will always worry about that rearend every time you push the gas pedal to the floor.I had a couple of setbacks on the 58.The first was that @~#^&*@# Clear Gears(brand name) cover I paid way to much for cracked all the way around from the deflection of the rearend (burn outs I am sure)so it dripped gear oil all over the driveway but at least it didn't dump all the oil while on the road to Vegas so I had to put the plain old metal cover back on.The second was the rear anti sway bar showed signs of touching the coil spring of the Edelbrock Sensatrack shocks when it has my tools in the bed.To ensure that I would not damage the shock with a heavy load or trailer I decided to turn the sway bar around and remount it.The only complication was because it was mounted were I needed to put the bracket for the connecting sway bar to the frame I had to drill the head off the rivet to the brake line support bracket on the drivers side and move it forward and bolt it down with one of the bolts for the bracket that holds the connecting rod from the frame to the sway bar.It took about 3 hours but now the sway bar can't hit the shocks or anything else.
