Lower radiator support rod help

Post by Schlangbang » Fri Apr 02, 2021 1:47 pm

Bought a set of lower radiator support rods for my 1953 M38A1. The right one seems to either be bent wrong or I’m installing it wrong. Please help!

Left and Right Rods are Different, are your rods the same?

The support rod in your photo is for the left side. As Joel says, they are different.
Left side is in the rear, right side in the front.
