Rear Shock Mounting Plates

  • Hi Guys,

    are the rear shock mounting plates different for the Kcode, (9 inch diff) than the normal 83/4 mustang Diff.

    my Ubolts from the diff down to the plate are angled in doesn't look right and I'm reasonably sure its not right, they should go straight down to the plate

    cheers

    For 65 and 66 Mustangs, all of them used the same plates regardless of engine size or axle size. Do you have the correct original U-bolts? The correct ones have flat spots on the top where they fit over the housing. If yours are round, they are wrong. I do have NOS ones if you need them.

  • Hi Fred,

    Ubolts are correct, however I took one of the Shock mounting plates off yesterday and got on Google to compare them the mounting plates look nothing like a 65-66 mustang mounting plate in fact they are the same as the 67-70 plates so I would say that is my issue

    cheers

    I am happy that you have figured out your issue. If you need the shock plates, I probably have them as used pieces.
