      there's some part numbers on the "maintenance parts" list on my website. several options from cheap but functional to Bilstein or Koni. Or you could go to your FLAPS and ask for front shocks for a Volvo 1800 or C1 Corvette (they're the same.)

            If you can get the OEM Mfg. Gabriel, I would do it in a heartbeat rather than buy anything Monroe. [xx(]

            Yes, it IS now owned by Monroe, [}] but I do not believe they make or changed Gabriel shocks much or any.
