What Shock for this rear mount?

Hello
For Christmas my wife bought me a new set of Bilstein's shocks from Atlantic British, I just tried to install them this weekend and realized the prev owner had installed an aftermarket rear top shockmount, so the pin-eye shocks I have wont work and need an eye-eye shock.

So few questions

1) Does anybody recognize this shock mount?

2) What is a comparable Bilstein shock I can use?

3) Does anyone need a set of rear shocks that would fit a stock shock mount?

Thanks in advance
Kev

Kev,

It's a Rockware.

You can buy the TF mounts or stock.

The rear shock top is eye-style.

Thanks Mr Dro?

I see my issue there is a pin-eye converter on the bottom mount.

Not to be dirty but can I get a picture of your bottom mount, to see what its should look like

Remove the existing shock, remove the mount under the shock, and you'll be back to normal.

Those mounts are for extended travel shocks. Did you get regular length shocks or extended?

You have what looks to be a Rockware shock mount painted yellow. Those took 14" shocks.

First question: what springs/lift are you running?

Mr Dro is my dad... You can call me Dro. . I've been called worse here.

You can easily remove the bottom eye-mount. That is where the shock stud mounts too.

If you are not planning to wheel that truck. Sell the RW mounts and get the TF ones.
