Re: Cheap Shocks

Here is the scoop on the AutoZone/NAPA parts you can get for your zook.

<font color=red>AutoZone</font color=red>
Front red ryder shocks - 81440
Rear red ryder shocks - 81538

These shocks sell for about $10 each. The rear shocks measure 14.5" compressed and 24" extended. I would imagine the fronts measure about the same. To use either of these shocks you will need to relocate your shock mounts. They give a pretty descent ride on the street and off-road and are a lot less expensive than some other name brands.

AutoZone also has U-joints for the Samurai that run about $7 and are greasable. Several people have used them with great success, however you may want to hold on to your old C-clips because the new ones may be too thick.

<font color=blue>NAPA</font color=blue>
Front extended brake hoses - 38541
Rear extended brake hoses - 38688

If they can not get lines as soon as you like, you can marry two sets together using four of the NAPA brake line nipples - 3325.

Re: Cheap Shocks

Are those the same part #'s to use for a 2" SR lift? Noticed my fronts are a little worse for wear. Thanks.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Jim

Re: Cheap Shocks

you need to take you shocks off and flex out your suspension. measure long and short distances. This will tell you what you need.
