Newyear, I believe this is the upper mount for an airbag suspension. Could you imagine getting everything together then hitting the switch then, BOOM!!! I had a buddy in High School that had his Ranger bagged. The bags rubbed the frame rail and rubbed a hole in the side of the bag. The gentleman that installed them didnt follow the instructions that were given to him.

Peter, that is supposed to be some "fabricator's" idea on how to build a trailer hitch.... To me that is the kind of person who you want to keep as far away from your classic car (or ANY car) as you can!

The welds are nothing short of stunning. I just wonder how they found the doorknob to exit the house that day.

Looks to me like Brandon hit it on the head...
I'm looking at a frame rail, header tubes, pitman arm and a sway bar jut above the lower control arm.
Good job, Brandon!
