This is on the rear drivers side, you can see drivers side shock close to it. The mount is rusted almost completely off and im trying to identify what it is so i can get a new mount for it.

Ok so info for any who search in the future, your best bet is to fab a bracket, or pay $142.00-$200.00 for the bracket.

Agree, long zip ties are all you need to secure a light ABS canister.
Make sure the hoses are connected properly, otherwise you'll get a CEL.

Thanks for the pics. Id like to modify it in a way so it wont be in the way of future shock replacements. I had a top bolt seized, so i left it in hoping itd snap and within 3 days it snapped an i now have 2 new rear shocks lol. The previous owner never replaced the shocks and i assume never did any fluid replacements.
What else is new.

Jeez, on the 98 ? These chemicals they use on the roads now-em-days are an auto manufacturer's best friend. So sick of rust and and how it destroys our cars.

well
I want on board air to run my air horns, have access for tire inflation on the trails and I have air shocks in the rear of my truck, but I would like to put air suspension in when I do my spring over axle and my solid front axle conversion
