Hard to Find Suspension Parts


SHOCKS - SPRINGS - CHASSIS - STEERING 

A-1 Shock Absorber Co, Inc. 

Established in 1936 and now specializing in suspension parts for  vintage, classic, military, and custom cars and trucks.

 


HEAVY DUTY SHOCKS


       


They have a bigger piston compared to OEM shocks for better stability.

 Recommend for light cars and trucks or for a "Cadillac ride" in full size cars.

 Order gas charged for quicker response and a crisper feel.

Hydraulic shocks are softer and will be the closest to the original factory ride.

 


EXTRA HEAVY DUTY SHOCKS

     

Approximately 50% bigger piston (1 3/8") to spread the load

 across providing superior stability and a comfortable ride. 

Ideal for full size cars, taxis, police, HD, and raised or lowered suspensions.

 Order gas charged for a crisper feel or hydraulic for a softer ride.

 

LIMO - SUPER DUTY SHOCKS

     

With a 1 5/8" piston these shocks are made to handle the toughest jobs.

SPRING ASSISTED SHOCKS

                 

AKA Load Levelers, helper shocks, booster shocks, and coil over shocks.

Air Shocks Kits
