Their catalog (http://nosimport.com/shoxcatalog.htm) shows RM6075 for
the roadsters and RM8002 for the convertibles. Based on the factory
parts list, I don't think that's correct:
AKD 8555 (3rd edition) parts list for BN6 gives 1B4459.
The AKD 1151 (4th edition) parts list for BN7, BT7 and BJ7 shows the
front shock changed during roadster production:
Original P/N: 1B4459
New P/N: AYH4040
Commencing: 17236 BN7 (Wire Wheels)
17129 BT7 (Wire Wheels)
18484 BT7 (Disc Wheels)
AKD 3523 parts list for BJ7 and BJ8 gives AYH4040.
So 1B4459 is RM6075 and AYH4040 is RM8002.
Off on a tangent: AKD 1151 shows BN7 production ended with car number
18888; BT7 with 19853. BJ7 production started with 17551. The
overlapping numbers would imply that all three series were in production
for a period of time, but the "Original Austin-Healey" by Clausager
states that the BN7 production ended in March 1962, BT7 ended in June
1962 and BJ7 started in May 1962.
