Default Re: A shock absorbers

I've used them on several restorations for other people.They make a big difference ion ride especially if there were no shocks or they were worn out before. They run around $750 a set with the link , arms and hardware which is the limit most people can afford unless they are willing to pay for show points. Put a set on for a lady and she loves the ride.

I have a set on my huckster and they seem to work the way they should. Have driven about 1500 miles over about 2 years.

I bought a set about 4 months ago. They were defective so they replaced them. Those were defective also. I got most of my money back. I would check into rebuilding. Ron W
