The PO had a set of Monroe shocks in My TR6 when I got it so I thought,
"No problem...I'll just nip down to the local parts place and have them
look up the number and replace them!" :-)
But the Monroe's were older and they didn't have a reference number. I
even called the Regional Monroe distributor and they said that, "No they
don't have any record of those old numbers on their new-fangled computer
system." CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!? I never heard of a company that can't
even reference their own products!!
So I put on a set of $35's that I got from Vicky Brit. They seem to do
fine, but I still wonder if their is a cheaper way to go. Let me know
what you discover.
Still bouncing...but not so badly...in my '73 TR6
