Question:
How do you attach these on the lower mount? I bought a wet to dry conversion kit and the lower rear mount where the long spring was, is not longer enough to mount these shocks. Is there a conversion mount or do I have to invent something?
Answer:
You have two choices: The stub axle in the rear trailing arm is pressed into the arm and thus after removing the clip you can press the wet version out and press a dry version in it place. But in addition to the cost of the axle you will have to have someone with a press to use enough force to move in and out. The most common method is the simply cut off the end sticking out and then drill and tap the axle for a bolt.

Please check out this article on wet to dry conversions: https://www.minimania.com/SUSPENSION___Converting_from_wet_to_dry_1228
because there are other parts that could be either changed or modified, depending on your abilities, the "kit" is simply the replacement parts for the "shocks" There are additional parts listed at the end of the article that might help you.
