it is an after-market shock absorber but I haven't seen that configuration before Are they just on the rear wheels or on the front too?

Not Ford. Aftermarket shocks. Somebody more familiar with accessories than I am will be along before long to ID them. :-)

Just on the rear.I haven't jacked it up yet to releive the spring tension but It looks like the shackles just ride on the mount

looks like some one over tightened them with the coils fully compressed there would be no benefit of having them on the car

They seem to set a little off center giving the chassis a lean to the right.hopefully the can be rehabed.
