Default Front Ground Straps

Could someone please be kind enough to post a couple of close-up photos of how/where the front ground straps are attached to the struts to prolong wheel bearing life? I looked in the parts catalog and didn't see any listing for an actual Chrysler part number. Would anyone happen to have the actual Chrysler part numbers, or some actual dimensions and terminal sizes, so I could fabricate myself a set of these?

Thanks,
Steve

This is the best shot I have but you can see it's attached to the upper bolt on the strut and then to the body. I don't think you have to as exact as your trying to make it, it's just a ground strap so a little longer or shorter than the actual strap won't hurt as long as it make good contact.

You don't need part numbers for this. Just call or go into your Chrysler parts department and tell them what you want. Now that you have Crewzins picture you can be very eloquent when describing it to them. You can even print Crewzins pic and take it in with you.
