Thanks heaps for those.

Looks like I can only get the cheaper rear Gabriel 81469 in Aus.
None of the others seem to be available
Would love to get hold of some Monroe 58496 but doesnt look likely at all.
Fronts dont seem available at all.

Most people here use KYB 4507 for the later C-bodies on the front. You have to cut the metal bushings at the bottom of them, but they work really well. The rears use shocks from an A-body Dart or Valiant.

Thanks very much for that.

I cant believe how cheap stuff is for you guys.

That blows out to about $200 shipped to Australia

Take your original shocks into Pedders. They will measure them and set you up with new ones.

I actually did that, spoke to my local Pedders and they said sorry, too much trouble.
I even offered them up Monroe and Gabriel #'s and they told me that its too hard, not interested.
Yeah, I know, lazy bas***ds!

I have rears now, waiting on info about some fronts.

I know you asked for local. However on some if these things I just order them online when local suppliers are not helpful. If you ordered them when you first wanted them, they would probably be here next week.

I know what youre saying.

No dramas though, got the Monroe air shocks locally (huge improvement so far) and front shocks are sorted too now so all good :-)
