59 Bel Air, front shocks are Monroe 5765. They didn"t come with a upper set of bushings or even room for 2 bushings, I can't load a picture but if you look up Monroe 5765 you will see what i mean

Wow, I just bought a Monroe set from Amazon but hadn't open the box yet. I checked Amazon's
picture on line that didn't show the top bushing and washer. I see that Amazon sells a pair of those for $5. I'll check NAPA auto if they sell the bushing and washer.

I just opened the boxes and check the shocks and that they appear they are designed of not using bushings. Boxes contained shocks, lock washers and nuts.

I just bought a new set of Monroes, and One had a Fine threaded stud and nut on the top, and bottom, and the other had a coarse threaded stud and nut on top, and bottom. They both came with washers and rubbers.

I finally made rubber pads for mine. In the box of spare bushings, I found a found another one with the matching raised area to go in the hole in the frame, actually the old one off the old shock was same. put it in a vice, and cut it in half, making it thin enough to still put a washer and nut on it. I don't like metal to metal, plus there is nothing to keep it centered in the frame hole.

I found a soft foam bushing to put under the frame, put that on shock first...................no offence, but I think gcrkfrd has a different model shock
