i used to have the hose going through the shock mount hole that I enlarged..

heres how I switched it up, what do you guys think?


Drilled a hole in the side of the upper bracket and switched out the straight fittijng with a swivel 90





Drilled a hole on the inside of the spring pocket to run the hose through. took a length of clear hose with braided reinforcements and snaked it through the frame and out of that hole. then ran the air line inside of that.





Looks like this when assembled. The clear hose is just for abrasion protection.





This is what it looks like on top now. Just a bolt head and washer where the hose used to go through.





Spindle on, powdercoated "chrome"





Air'd up




:biggrin:

That looks great :cool: . I intend to use that idea with the 90 degree fitting and run the air line out of the side of the mounting.

I couldn't help noticing that your car hasn't got quite as much surface rust underneath as mine :cheesy:.
