shock mount bolt
« on: February 26, 2014, 03:27:03 PM »
When traction bars were put on my car, original bolts were removed. I have a set of z shocks, part number 3192851. In the picture the bolt is not the same as what is sold as the rear shock mount bolt. Bolt on left is a repop, middle is original. Shock shows welded in stud and it does not have the solid metal collar like the bolts. Jerry's book picture matches my shock.  What is the deal with these bolts. Were they used on replacement shocks?

Are you sure that is a weld, and not just a painted bushing?

I agree. Looks like the rubber bushing painted over. Did you try pushing your fingernail or screw driver etc into it?

The item on the far right is a production shock, with integral bushing and stud; they were always painted as shown, and there are NO welds - that's a painted rubber bushing.

The end of the shock bolt at the top is flat and welded. Like a washer welded on.  Hard to see in the picture. I have a feeling to use the other two studs they are upside down.

I am looking in Jerry's book on page 69, the two rear shocks don't have the same bolt. One on left is like the 2 I have. The one one right doesn't show the washer piece covering up the bushing

the washer on the end of the shock is staked on....might look like a weld, but I believe it is staked.  I have several sets of orig shocks and they all the same - staked as in the third pic.

I don't mean to hijack this thread but I have almost the exact same question on the restoration of my '68 L35 SS car. The repro rear shocks I have (p/n 3192832) have the washer staked on. The AIM (page 288, L35 A13) clearly shows the shock installation with the lock washer and nut. So my question is, when are the bolts shown in reply 1 used? My car also had them installed but possibility due to a previous owner who installed air shocks. The Camaro vendors are advertising this bolt for use on multi-leaf springs cars but if the original shocks used a staked on washer then when are these bolts used?

Thanks,

Bob
