Rear Shock Mounts

Does anyone know of a good source for shock hangers? I am putting a chevy 10 bolt in the rear of my 52 and want to upgrade the shock hangers, but am having trouble finding a source. Any help is much appreciated!!
thanks

Make your own. Use 1/4" angle iron, plate, rectangular tubing or whatever structural shape that will best make the bracket you need. Then weld or bolt it to the frame and use a universal shock stud bolted to the bracket to mount the shock. Here is a photo of a stud used on motorcycles but the car version is similar in shape and function.


That's how I made the rear shock mounts for this '36 Pontiac frame.
Don't have a close-up picture but as I recall. I just welded a plate of 3/16" across the frame rails and bolted the shock stud to it.


Here is a bolt-on shock mount on my '53 Chevy pickup. This is factory made but the principle is the same.


Here is another example posted in the Photo Album on this board by member black66. Looks like he cut it out of rectangular tubing or even bent it up from sheet metal. Be creative!
