Hi everyone,

I am a new member and bought a 64 Avanti last September. I have bought KYB gas shocks for the front but can't seem to find gas shocks for the rear.. All the Auto parts stores have no listing for an Avanti. And the 'cross reference' lists on other Stude sites haven't been helpful.... What are your recommendations? Thanks for the feedback and helping a new guy out here.

SHOCK - c/K 1955 Coupe - Autozone 80260 (Rear)

62 GT Hawk - Monroe-Matic 31094 Noted to fit rear of 1951 to 1956

Studebakers. Same as the Type "A" shock in the 55-58 parts book, the ones with

out the metal sleeves. Use a propane torch to heat up the rubber bushings and

press the sleeves out of old shocks / fit them to the new shocks. The new shocks do come with a metal sleeve in the box but it appeared to be too short for the GT Hawk.

SHOCK - C/K 1955 (Gabriel 80260) ( appear to be a direct fit, BUT you must save the "sleeves" from your old shocks. They do fit properly in the bushings of the new shocks.

Doing some research for shocks I found the following applications...some have already been listed. I'm only listing what I found as front and rear complete sets. The numbers come from their websites and should fit all Avanti's from '63 through '85 on the original Studebaker frame.

Gabriel Classic

front 82087

rear 82103

Delco

front 520-332

rear 520-338
