Bobble Strut Bracket

Looking for the bracket that bolts to the rear of an A520 transmission for the bobble strut to attach to. Part number 4412041 I believe.

Swapping an auto for a manual transmission and the transmission did not come with this part.

Thanks.

Re: Bobble Strut Bracket

I'm wondering if this is what you are looking for.

steel engine mount bracket

The strut itself can be bought from the same company.

Re: Bobble Strut Bracket

there's the factory good for nothing shock absorber style ones
there's the adjustable solid ones from the vendors
and there's the '87 K car ones

those look like the dog bone style found in the L body cars

they use a unique bracket to mount on the trans (520-568)as they have a horizontal bolt rather than the vertical threaded post on the shock style ones

Hey Dr. Dodge, I have a 568 going in an L-body. I'll be using cables. I was just trying to hook up the rear bobble mount tonight, but I don't think I have what I need. I have the stock shock absorber style I know, but what is the '87 K-car bracket that mounts to the transmission? what does it look like? I want to just run a bolt through the ears of the k-frame side of the mount. I've never done it before.

Re: Bobble Strut Bracket

the bracket I referred to attaches the bobble bracket to the trans , not the K frame

the bottom of the bobble bracket should fit between the tabs on the K frame .. until you try to put a 520-568 trans into the car

it will come down right beside one of the tabs - towards the outside of the tab , not between like it should

this is solved with welding on another tab ... OR finding a short piece of steel tubing to go between the tabs and a longer bolt

if you can attach your bobble bracket to the trans as you are you're not missing anything

the only thing that's supposed to be needed to attach to the K frame is the nut and bolt
but the trans swap affects that slightly

Re: Bobble Strut Bracket

Most common style.






then the hard to find, bad ass, way more clearance style. Dr JD says he finds them on k-cars. Never seen one there but I have found 2 on 88 5spd caravans.

Re: Bobble Strut Bracket

yep .. K car 87 520 is what I pulled mine from
it was also a really nice minty clean car thus the decision to pull the trans from it
- so I doubt it had been replaced (mid early 90's)

probably the only 5spd 87^ K car I ever saw in the yards so I can't say more than what I found ..
I had the console and shifter from it saved too in case the K wagon thing ever happened

some really early daytonas and lazers back the end of 83 / early 84 also got dog bones on their 525's

Long before I ever knew the second style existed, I cut up and re-welded the common style. Easy to do. Required if using TBI manifold.

Not all of us have your fab skills though Todd :)


My SDS and shifter cable are more in the way than the bobble strut bracket is though :(
