I need some help finding rear shocks for a NON Ford. Does any one know of a site or company that can help? They are for a 1963 Buick Electra. I've wrote to and called the better known shocker makers non of been of any help. I wouldn't ask this if it wasn't my brothers car.

On the rear, a Monroe #37039 sensa-trac is a very close match to original. It's approx. 1" longer both closed & open, with the same travel and same mountings.

On the front, a Monroe 37072 Sensa-trac is the closest I can see. The lenths are almost bang on (all within less than .250) and the top mount is correct. The bottom mount is the same style, however it is a little narrower pattern (2 bolt cross pin style). It's only 2-7/16" center to center instead of 2-7/8". Can you find a way to work around that?

No problem.

I've got the books here, might as well put them to good use once in a while.
