37 shocks

I do not know personally, but have heard Chevy's cars from the same era had knee action shocks as well...perhaps ask the Chevy guys on their forum....they might be able to lead you in the right direction.

The Chevy "knee action" was different, at least for the first several years. It was a Dubonnet system and the front coil springs were enclosed in the shocks. The Dodge shocks in the picture are properly called "lever shocks". Chevrolet has confused the issue by calling both types "knee action".


Apple hydraulics (of NY) can rebuild either kind. There is also a company in California whose name escapes me right now.

My front shocks seam to work fine, however they leak oil. Does anyone know where i can send them to be rebuilt? 1937 1.5 ton ME-31


I was told by a customer that these don't need rebuilding. Only the shaft seal goes bad. Replace that and your good to go.
