RE: [T3] suspension

<x-charset iso-8859-1>Advance Auto Parts has Monroe shocks for $11.99 and they keep them in stock.
Lifetime replacement warranty as well, in case they ever start leaking.

Plus..... no shipping charges!

Who says your FLAPS doesn't have any parts for your car? =)

I believe all shocks have been replaced at least once, none of them look
stock. One of them is completely hashed and needs to be replaced. Jc
whitney has some gabriel's for 8.88 a piece, of I think kyb's are not
very much either. I figured if the job can be done, I will replace all
four of them.

Shocks are certainly something that you can usually do with hand tools,
although on these old cars a torch is often useful, too. I wouldn't
shocks just because they are old since the originals are of excellent
and are often still good now.
