Question, this is the first year our promoter is allowing hardnosing, i am building a 75 Newyorker with a pointy bumper, now i will be welding it to the frame, my question is ,is it beneficial to keep the shocks on extend them and weld them to the side of the frame along with welding the bumper to the frame?

some say yes some say no... last 2 years i ran a mopar flat on the front with just the shocks collapsed and welded and id did alright... this next year im hardnosing a rear bumper on the front without shocks at all....... mostly a matter of opinion... definatley many ways to build any mopar
Talk all you want! You dont know me!! POWERED BY MOPAR!!!
imo the shocks help alot more then hurt on a shocker i have found it best with our rules only allowing us to weld 10 inchs from the front of frame back to just use newyorker shocks or shorten the newport shocks i weld the shocks to the frame and bumper to the shocks that way u still use all the bolts plus weld
that one no doubt will be a good learning experiance as to weather i rethink my building techniques or if i like what it does it still has mass amounts of work to be done still have 2 more down bars to add= total of 6 front center window bar will get redone and tied in along top of window to the the outter bars. ive been brain storming on a leaf idea that i think will help out the back alot. only time will tell
