Re: Shock mounts on 14 bolt

I just bought new shock mounts and mounted them as per the old 12 bolt. Works great. That was in 2000.

Re: Shock mounts on 14 bolt

I made a jig that bolted to the stock shock mounts on the 12 bolt and sat on the center section. I cut them off, cleaned them up, and welded them on the 14 bolt. A semi-float in the case of my truck. Used the jig again on my kid's Jimmy project with another semi float. I reused the 14 bolt shock mounts on it. I like the way the original 72 12 bolt shock mounts worked better FWIW.
