Quick quesiton...I have a multi-leaf spring setup on my '67. (8.5 inch rear from a '79 skylark)...
I think that the shock mounts (outside--close to the tire) may be rubbing the tire.

Can I simply get '68 mounting plates (moving the shock mount "inside," or will I have to change something else)?

Tire size on the rear FWIW, is BF Goodrich radial TA 255/60/15 on rally wheels.

No. You can relocate the shocks inboard of the spring, but it requires relocating the upper shock mounts. Your wheels might have the wrong backspacing. If you have room between the outer sidewall and the wheel opening you could try a spacer between the drum (or rotor if discs) and the wheel.

I thought about a spacer, but am worried that the wheels might not be prefectly "on center" then (no longer using the "hub" as a guide for the center of the wheel)...also, I'm not sure how much lug nut I will have ...

It is drum brakes, by the way...
