In addition to Skill Envy, Workshop Envy and Multiple Car Envy (all being syndromes brought on by my readership of this forum), I can now add Shocker Envy! FordBarn has a lot to answer for.

Please keep us informed about your observations re changes to your car's road manners after you install the little suckers, and also how they perform over time (oil leaks?, adjustments? etc - not that I'm wishing any of these on you!). I'm going to subscribe to this thread in anticipation of that discussion.

Now go find some pot-holes!!

Just got mine. Beautiful! I'm going to hate having to paint them, they should be polished and displayed!

Thanks, Bill! You do great work.

Now I have something to look forward to. I have a set on order!

Thanks for the video. Cool clock. Sounded like you were filming in a church!

Great video, those are beautiful!

Something neat would be to film your car from the outside going over some bumps and cornering without shocks, and then film the same places once the shocks are installed!

Hoogah from SW Victoria, Australia,

I do plan on making more videos on my process of the shock installation and I cannot assume this is a simple or complex process since my ignorance on this subject as a new owner and have not performed this task before. I'm sure some of what I'll make note of is common knowledge to the experts but I'm making this for myself and if others get something out of all the better...
