Rear end bump stops

Hi,
Trying to figure out what type of rubber bumper stop I need for my 56 Ford panel truck. There are two bolt holes on the hump in the frame where it goes over rear axle on each side of rear end. Looks like maybe a bracket with the rubber stop goes there...any pics of these? Posted on the Ford Truck site yesterday, but not many responses yet...thanks again,
James

Mid Fifties has the bump stop you need. I made my own on my 56 F100. I took an aluminum piece of stock and bought a pair of those rubber bumpers they use on traction bars. Mark the two holes and drill it out, The center hole is drilled and tapped to fit the screw on the rubber piece. Simply screw it on the plate and cut the excess off the back of the plate. Bolt it up to the frame. The first time you bottom out on the bumper, the aluminum will conform to your frame rail. You now have a bumper stop. Ebay has several bumper stops you can use as well. If you want the original.. Mid fifties or Bob's F100 has the original but it'll cost ya$$$

Thanks,
yep, seems easy enough to make. BTW, I called Midfifty and they didn't seem to have the bracket, just the round rubber piece. I will probably go the route you suggested...no need for a lot of money on those..Thanks again Nice truck ya have there!

Not a problem! Looks like that item is tough to get or no demand for it. I used the plate because it had the two tapped holes already on the frame. If you don't care (since no one looks underneath at the bumper stops) you can simply drill a hole, tap it and screw in a rubber bumper stop and your done. I opted for the plate because I didn't want to look at the two holes...
