05 F350 CC C&C Rear Shock Mounts Issue
I'm having issues with the rear shock mounts on my F350 CC C&C. Just replaced my shocks with new Magnums but they look long for the install and rub the frame during cycling.
The upper shock mounts are riveted on the frame so they won't move. But on the axle, they are c-clamped to it. The bracket looks like they both have moved and rotated upward, but something is not right. There is a sway bar in the way for the rotation. I've verified the application before leaving Advance. The mounts are mounted to the front of the axle on both sides.
The axle bracket sets behind the sway bar. If I were to adjust the bracket to be below the sway bar, then I think I would be fixing the frame rub and length issues. Rotating them downward would swing the shock away from the frame as well as make it longer.
Anyone have c-clamped axle shock mounts?
