I plan on tackling the front shocks on my 65 coupe (289) on Sunday... My mechanic said that I need to remove the two bolts from the shock to the shock mount. The 3 bolts on the shock mount, and then put a 2x4 in between the control arm and the frame, and jack up the car from the control arm, and I can then access the bolts underneath to remove the shock. Does this sound correct? He couldn't remember if the 2x4 was necessary or not. Anything else I need to know? I'm certainly new to this stuff. Any suggested type of shock? I'll be going to a local auto parts store, and was just going to ask them, but if anyone has a specific brand they find rides nice and smooth, I'm open to it. Thanks.
