57 Roadmaster Front and Rear Shocks


Recommended Posts

Any current shock absorbers that are available will work if yours need to be replaced.  The thing I've noticed is that unless yours are already bad, you won't really see a difference in the car's driving charistics.

After looking in www.rockauto.com for '57 Buick shocks, finding only rear ones, I then looked at 1958 Buick shocks, for which there were front and rears.  In EACH case, the shocks fit lots more vehicles than just Buicks!  So, the question becomes "What makes the '57 and '58 front shocks different from each other?"  "What would it take to adapt '58 front shocks to a '57 front suspension?"

 

Just some curiousities . . .
