    Posted: Dec/06/2018 at 10:37am
HI,
 just putting back my 69 AMX rear end and i can't remember the shock location forgot to take a picture when removed. IIRC  the right shock is on the front of the axle and the left one is on the back both on the inside u bolt.
both torque links are exterior of leaf  springs and adjusted as per shop manual

I can't remember if there is a washer or lock washer on the front leaf springs bolts as well
I'd apreciate a picture but an explanation would be fine too
Thanks for your knowledgeEmbarrassed

Regards,Jean

From 1967-72 AMC Parts Manual for 1968 and on ( 30 ) AMX and ( 70 ) Javelin
iirc 1969 AMX did not have staggered shocks, but can be fitted with them but...
requires 2 bottom shock mount plates from the same side and a little modification up top ?

I recently installed new Monroe gas shocks and rebuilt torque links. Here is a picture of the driver's side.

On my '69 AMX both rear shocks were behind the rear axle...
But... and this was 30 years ago... I did pay a shop to install new Leaf Springs
and I have no idea if they put it back together right... now you have me wondering...
As mentioned, I don't think 1969 had "staggered shocks"... but could be wrong...
I thought staggered rear shocks came along sometime later...
BUT do remember folks posting that staggered shocks could be "done" to a 1969...
BUT a person had to get a 2nd Bottom Shock Mounting Part so they had 2 of "one hand"
but I can not remember which "hand", left-hand or right-hand... and...
seem to remember it also required some modification on one side up at the top rear shock mount.

AND... that 1967-72 AMC Parts Manual Diagram I posted sure seems to "imply"
that the Shock Bottom Mount is IN FRONT ! ? of the Axle Tube.... what ?...
The Diagram has to be wrong I guess....

For AMX both rear shocks are behind the axle.

Here is the passenger side shock mounting. Shocks are not staggered.
