  • Rear shocks for a '56 sedan . . .

    I need a pair of rear shocks for a '56 sedan. I have done a search and can't seem to find any threads that list interchanges for this shock. If anyone has a list of what will work, I'd surely appreciate it!

    N8N has a parts exchange list, which will show shocks for
    your 56, by manufacturer....Gabriel, Monore, Bilstein, Delco
    with the appropriate part number.

      Gabriel Red Ryder Gas 82060. You should have been with me today at the Long Beach Swap Meet. A guy has KYB Gas Adjusts for $35 apiece.

        I'm not sold on KYBs. I had a pair that came with my 944 on the rear, the PO had installed them, they were clunking and rattling within a year. I remember when he installed them, so they didn't last very long. Also my old landlady had an old Nissan pickup, I borrowed it one day and mentioned that it felt kind of underdamped, she might want to think about replacing the shocks - here she'd just got new ones. That her ex-husband mechanic had installed for her. They were KYBs. Oops. I stuck my foot in it that time I guess but I was just trying to be helpful.

          Alas, I was out at the CA Poppy Preserve near Lancaster. The poppies were at their peak this weekend--really quite a sight. We went for a 6 1/2 mile hike then ruined the great exercise with carne asada, tortillas, guacamole and 3 Bohemias. Oh well . . .
