|The 74 Avanti needs shocks. Monroe has a $25 rebate on the purchase of four shocks. Rock Auto has a great price on Monroe Shocks.
I love it when the Karma from the Studebaker Heaven come together.
Thanks to Nate Nagle's page https://www.georgiastudebaker.com/Interchange.pdf I found the correct shocks and ordered them. Thanks again Nate!!
Four shocks shipped to my door (Sensa Trac) $84.67 including 5% discount from Rock Auto. With the $25 rebate Total - $59.67 Huzzah - Huzzah.
I purchase a lot from our suppliers but this is too good a deal to pass up.
The rear shocks needed to be modified by replacing the upper pin with a 2 3/8" X 5/8" OD (7/16" ID) cylinder. I machined mine out of stainless steel.
Be sure to cut the original pin off and use the new cylinder to push it out after lubing the new cylinder.
A shot of the whole deal.
Part #'s 5759 front, 5831 rear.
If I am not mistaken, the cross reference for these shocks is 1970-1981 Camaro.
