Front Shock Lower Mount

Was wondering if the front lower shock mounts on a 97 350 were replaceable seperate from the leaf spring or are the mounts part of the leaf spring. Want to replace one of mine and dont want to remove the u bolts and find the mount is part of the spring.

It is seperate. U can replace them by droping the u-bolts. I think terryknight may have some if u need some. Not sure if the d-60 ones are the same as the d-50 ones he has

That's the bolt that holds the spring leafs together.
