just wanted to say i recieved my brackets from monzamouse yesterday! very nice quality and workmanship on these pieces! :th: thanks larry! this really simplifies the rear end swap big time having fresh parts to work with instead of trying to get the old brackets off the rear i have in the car now, they arent gonna come off without ruining them!

Art, Thanks for the 25* i really could not use my existing brackets for reference,also i noticed the new brackets as they sit on the driveway, the shock bolts are not paralell to the ground,but seem to rise-angle up toward where the bracket welds onto the axle tube(difficult for me to explain) will these shock bolts end up level when the bracket is in place?
Thanks for your help Art !

keith not sure what you mean, but if you need to see a stock vehicle, there are probably hundreds(or more) pics of the rear ends of stock, and altered rears on our forum in the project journals, amn the regular tranny-driveline and suspension section art
