Down in Front!
Sometimes, to get achieve a desired look in a custom hot rod,
you need to get creative with the engineering. Because of the design of
the front end, the desire to keep it low, the need for a traditional look,
the headllights that had been chosen, and the need for shocks that actually
worked, we had to go back to the drawing board. For all the reasons just
meantioned, standard shock mounts located outside the frame would not work.
So... we came up with a way of locating the shocks and the mounts inside
We'll be using Bilstein Street Rod shocks.
On the outside it looks like an old style friction shock arm.
