My parents helped me out by buying me these:

http://shoebox-central.com/1949-1950-1951-1952-ford-lower-control-arm-rubber-bumper-bump-stop

to replace the old one and one that went off into the universe upon hitting a pothole.

My question, before jacking up the car and rolling around on the floor trying to figure it out, is:  how are these installed?  Is there a blind nut/threads on the A-arm, or do I need to find a nut and washer?

Thanks in advance!

The bumper looks like a cone the small end sticks upward and the
larger end has a stud that goes threw a hole in the arm Ass'y. with
a 3/8 24 lock nut on it . Hope this helps wrs50ford Southern Wisconsin

Chassis Parts and Accessories Catalog it breaks most everything
down so you can tell how things go together wrs50ford Southern Wisconsin

I have noticed when it comes to bolts and nuts sometimes you are on your own. like shock bolts or rear motor trans mount. I just pull bolt out and go to hardware store and get it or a bolt supply store. I always ask shoe box first but sometime even they may not have a good one. Napa has been helpful , I would have probably taken the other side off and took it to get  nuts and bolts.............. that'll be great thing about the catalog ill know before I even jack it up. that is helpful believe me my 49 is lowwwwww.

Thanks again, I don't have a copy of that book yet (more shopping!!), so grabbing all of this "free" info is great for me.

I had thought of disassembling the passenger side and taking a peek, but, I usually work "harder not smarter" and am trying to do the opposite this time. haha!

Thanks again everyone.
