Definitely replace the shock to frame bolts with Allen/socket head bolts. If they have been loose the holes will be elongated. 

‘63 TR4 since ‘67

While looking through my Moss catalog I noticed the kits for replacing the Armstrong shocks with these brackets that you could mount shock absorbers to. But the kits are NLS.  No Longer Supplied.  I was wondering why the kits  were discontinued.  It could have been that they caused damage to the frame, or just didn’t work.  I was hoping somebody had any first-hand knowledge or experience on this topic that they could discuss. I wonder if the racing group all have custom and proprietary set ups.
