just throwing this in the thread so someone doesnt make the same mistake I did, I have a 78 brat and the monroe shocks that were in this thread will not work on it because the lower portion is different. I am on my third set of shocks trying to find something to work. Once I actually find some the lift is complete.
With the monroe shocks u have to cut out all the rubber. And it will work. Tell me if u need pics.

cut out the rubber in the bottom attachment? the part with the wings? I seen the pics of the upper mount you made but not the bottom if you did anything there
Yes, get the bar and all the rubber out. It will mount on stock bottom shock location with the rubber and nuts from the old shock. The load levelers work great for towing as it doesn't let the rear end come down to far.

okay I will try that, unfortunately I damaged a pair of $80 shocks trying to make them fit, and they didn't and now I can't return them.
I think u will like the load leveler shock.
One note however is that u will have to create a new top bracket like I did as the shock wont reach the stock location up top. I have a drawing to give to a fab shop if u need it.
Also what I did to get the shock in the correct position ( travel length wise) it to let suspension hang (top of shock disconnected ), then jack up suspension about 1/4" or so and install the top mount for the shock. This should be( if all my math was correct) the correct position for the travel length of the Monroe shock I used. And the shock will bottom out before the torsion bar on either side is over stressed.
Tell me if u want some more pics or need dimensions or anything.
Oh and post some pics of your rig... want to see it.

On a different note, has anyone found manufactured brake hoses that will bolt in to the 4" lift? I may just have mine made locally if not.
