A picture would be very helpful. I've never seen a setup with the shock mounted to both the upper and lower "A" arms and it doesn't make sense to me why someone would do it that way.

Also, using CAPS is considered YELLING. Please refrain from using caps unless you intend to yell.

i think i know what you're talking about. get the latest issue of Rod & Custom, Jan. 2005.

they do a brake and shock upgrade on a '51 Plymouth. starts on page 49. It shows the original shock as you describe. They end up welding some brackets onto the frame and mounting the shock from the bracket down to the lower arm.

Actually, check out this link to the R&C website.

hope this helps.
