Re: 39-40 coupe struts

If you have a good set of original shocks they do quite well. As for adding tube shocks, there are brackets that show up on ebay quite often for the rear of 35-40 cars and trucks.

Re: What in Tarnation?

You also could drill out the tube even with the nut, drill a couple of small holes thru the nut on opposite sides and use a easy out.
