Shock Mount Qustion

Is there an adapter kit that allows me to use my old shock mounts with the aftermarket smaller mounting stud?

Not specific to the Mark VIII, but I've found similar solutions in the past at the local NAPA store.

I apologize for the lapse in memory (it's been many years ago), but as I recall we sampled several different Monroe shocks they had in stock and we ended up with a set of bushings and a sleeve that worked once we found a match. At the time I went from the stock mount to the aftermarket mount along with the Koni adjustable shocks, so that added some complexity.

You'll be assembling something similar to this pic:

I hope this helps. ;)

I feel like when I did this waaay back, the factory sleeve was actually too small, and I had to drill it out with the drill press.

Cooked the belts in that thing pretty badly that day, but I got the job done.
