Default Need Source For Rebuilt Shocks

Has anyone taken over Robert Paul's shock rebuilding business?

Call John Holland at 303-483-3896 if you are looking for a shock re-builder. He does excellent work and is quite reasonable. I have had his rebuilt shocks on my A for 10 years without any problems.

I just tried that number (303-483-3896) and reached a guy in Denver who assures me that he is not John Holland and he knows nothing about rebuilding Model A shocks. I'm pretty sure the correct number for John Holland is 330-483-3896.

I also got rebuilt shocks from John Holland. I've had them on the car for 1,000 miles or so and they are they are great! I did not have shocks previously and they really make it go over bumps much better.
He takes a little while to get them completed but his work is 1st rate.
I was only able to supply him with one rebuildable shock and he supplied the other three cores for me.
I think this is a much better option than the "new" shocks from the vendors and less than half the cost of the new shocks

Yes Sir John Holland is the man for rebuilt shocks. That is where I got mine but I did have to wait about a month due to him being backlogged with work. Hugh

RE: Post #2---So sorry! My old brain does not work as well as it used to. It is definitely area code 330 NOT 303.....
