Talking about a "shock mount"? L shaped mount that holds the bottom of the shock and the strut rod ?


That bent? Wow!! Shocked

There's a left and a right - make sure to order the correct side - they are also a PITA to get out of the bearing support...

I was checking it out on corvette central catalog and the new one looks the same as mine. It seems that they are made with that slight angle.Looks like I got lucky there.The old bent strut rod is replaced and all I have to do next is tighten everything up.It started to rain.Oh Paul your right it was aCensored to get that little dickens out. Next thing is to check the parking brakes to see if that where my noise is coming from.
