1973 620 gas shocks

Recommended Posts

So I recently replaced my blown front shocks with oem shocks, which then blew out within a week. I have cut the bump stops and cranked the tortion bars down in the front. Its maybe 3 1/2" to 4" lower total, not quite resting on whats left of the bump stops. Does anyone have any idea what size shock I need to stop blowing them out?

Pinto shocks. People have used them for the lowered trucks

Or modify the top shock mount higher by an inch. Then you can run good truck shocks.

I bought KYB Gas A Just and have the bump stop out and lowered close to the end of the threads on the torsion adjustment.

 

they are still good over 10yrs now

 

there is also a another KYB red ones that are more expensive  Mono Max

 

 

maybe raise fron up a 1/2 inch might help

I have a new set of KYB GR-2 gas shocks that I bought, but then found a Bilstein set...

Make you a hell of a deal on them...

Never used, or even bolted on.
