Would someone with a 68 please do me a big favor and measure the distance from the shock crossmember to end of the frame rail? My old one was pretty beat up and I want to make sure I get the new one in the right place.

Thanks in advance...

Are you talking about the rear shocks going toward the back of the car?

There is a crossmember that runs across the body at the front of the truck. This also serves as the mounting for the shocks. The meaurement that I after is from where the frame rail and that crossmember meet to the end of the rail at the back of the car.

Thanks in advance.
