    I put the Monroe shocks on my G20, stopped the bouncing. I guess that's the important part.

    I had air shocks on the front and rear of my 66 van. I had the V8 in it when I installed them. I had a nice smooth ride.

    I like the two LARGE exhaust pipes peeking out under the rocker panel, what's in the doghouse?

    Van came from Zanesville Ohio. It was built in Maryland somewhere. The builder had cancer and died before it was finished.

    Van has a newly rebuilt 1970 250 six with a Weber carb and a Turbo 350 auto. The zoomies are actually a tuner fartcan.

    I got my shocks from rockauto. Monroe I think. Seem to work well. The best upgrade was the saybar for sure. Good shocks will make a difference though

    The Monroes available for our vans are the stock replacements. I've used them on all our earlies.
