Lawrie, it might help to see some side views, and mounting end views, know the length of the arms and their part numbers, the diameter of the shock body, plus knowing the center to center distance between the mounting holes would all be good info to help ID these.

The earlier style is slightly smaller in diameter. I believe Ford went to the larger diameter shock body in 41. If the arms have the number 10 embossed or stamped into the arm at the small reinforcement they are 1940 fronts. The screw on caps on the main body were changed in 38-39 for the spring loaded seal (what you have).

Lawrie, Thanks for posting additional pictures. I am glad others chimed in on the ID because I was still not sure what year they are for, other than knowing they were not '35 or earlier.
