History of A-1 Shock Absorber Company
Established in 1936 to rebuild all brands of lever action shocks.
The company grew and then
declined as the original owners aged.
We (Mark and Phillip Lincenberg) purchased the business in 1982,
we created our own line of shocks that we sold worldwide.
We also diversified into rebuilding heavy duty
truck steering gears.
As the market changed so
did A-1 Shock, we began specializing in
suspension parts for vintage, classic, and custom cars and trucks.
All parts are guaranteed to fit and function properly.
Once ordered, parts can not be cancelled or returned.
