The front shocks changed in early '67, but I can't tell what changed 
about them. They may have just changed the damping. I don't find any 
other part that changed at the same time.

There were also early and late heavy duty front shocks, but I've 
never seen any of those to the best of my knowledge. They were only 
installed after delivery, never installed at the factory.
