  • front shocks for 1962 Lark

    I just replaced the front coils on my 62 Lark. I nopticed that the shocks were shot. When I tried to order new ones at my local NAPA they did not show a listing. What shocks do I order, and who has them? Thanks.

      Look for front shocks for a '63-'66 Buick Riviera...same application...but give our vendors a chance first to help.

          not at all, the rears are nothing like the fronts

          see my web site for interchanges, but make sure you read all the footnotes

            I used the Corvette front shocks from Nate's interchange on my '63. You need to turn the "holes" in the bottom attachment into "slots" and use a big washer to insure it is clamped tight to the lower A arm, but they work just fine. Same compressed and extended distances. Same top attachment. NAPA's gas shock is $17 each for this one.
