artistsport3 Thanks for the response........I will use a "hot" wrench cautiously.......Not only is the brake line close but the fuel line and filter is above.......tucked into the frame below the fuel pump on the 383.

streetrodderbn The "hot wrench"(torch) will bake the shock rubber bushings(probably set them ablaze) and you can remove the old shocks and you then can reuse the studs and bolts, just have a box of baking soda handy-or water to douse the flames- should it ignite, and keep the flame away from the brake lines-brake fluid is flammable! Then measure the old shocks, I will look on sunday, I think I have a replacement set from Pete and Jakes to steal a part number from for you.

cobalt327 Must be a conversion, at least I thought the originals weren't tube shocks. But in any event, they should come off by prying the shock eye from the stud, unless I'm missing something.

Lower from Shock stud 1940 Ford Coupe

Help! I'm not smart enough to figure this out. I am trying to replace the front TUBE STYLE shocks on my solid axle 40 Ford Coupe. It has "Allstate Supramatic tube shocks #8158 3LD". Since it has MADE IN AMERICA on the shock....I think these are elderly....Got the top bolt nut off as well as the lower. Tried to push the bolt (stud) through the casting but it was a NO GO. The lower stud has a flat round surface that holds the shock from the inside which bolts to a cast piece mount on top of the spindle.What I have from the outside in is: is a threaded stud...then the cast piece...then the shock....then the round flange.(nothing to grab on to) I didn't want to pound on it VERY Much........Any advice?
