shock part numbers

Post by 63lark on Thu Jul 09, 2015 10:09 am

Hi,

Does anyone happen to have the part numbers for the front & rear shocks for a 63 Skylark? Local auto parts place is having a heck of a time getting me correct ones.

Thanks,
Doug

Good luck and let us all know if you figure something out that works -- I spent a fair bit of time trying to find shocks and springs for my 61 and came up pretty empty except for this place....

Pretty pricey stuff.

Classicbuicks.com has them for roughly the same price - PN# SA50170 for front & SA50171 for rear

I'm trying to start collecting the bits to re-rubber the front end...

I'll look through the records, but if you are willing to make 2 brackets, the front shocks are more 'available' and not 100.00 a set. On my car, my dad was able to find shocks of the correct length but with a stud at top instead of a bracket. To use them, he made 2 brackets. They are 1/4" thick strap with 3 holes in them. I'll go through the records tonight and see what I can find. Otherwise, I'll have to see if I can match something up with the same lengths. I am sure it will be easier today than back in the 80s when Dad did this previously.

Edit. I went through the records and found nothing. I'll have to take one off and see if I can get a number or measure them...
