Dumb question alert, but I can’t seem to find the answer anywhere.. I have a ‘73 impala I’m trying to hard nose, and I can’t seem to figure out a good way to do it. I’m using a ‘76 (I think) monte bumper that has side frame shocks. I’ve been told to remove the box that the ‘73 bumper bracket originally mounts to, but that will put my frame rails behind my core support, and take away my core support mount holes. Rules won’t allow me to move core support back, so I’m just curious if I should use stock shocks, hard nose to the box, or what else? Thank you.

I’ve got a 73 Buick that I am hard nosing with an L shaped plate welded to the bumper, 10 inches long. I squared off the front frame rails but the bumper sits right up next to the core support which I do not like. Anybody have any suggestions for a remedy? I have 74-76 shocks I could weld on but I would like to use the plate to cover the BOP hole in the frame.
