    Gabriel Air shocks

    I bought these shocks for my 1962 Ford Falcon. I've had this car for about 3 years and have replaced many items with new "replacement" parts, only to find out when I go to install them that they're not the same. They don't fit or function the way the old ones do. I typically have to go to the internet and find New Old Stock parts. They fit perfectly, but they've been on the shelf for a long time. That's not a big deal if the part doesn't have any seals or gaskets in it. These shocks fit perfectly. They were a little tricky to install. You really have to decide how you want to route the air lines from the shock to the air valve (Do you go through the frame or around it? Follow or attach to another part outside the frame? Where do I want the air valve? etc.) so that they don't chaff or rub against something only to wear a hole in them later. Also, if you're like me, I'm very selective where I drill holes in a car I want to keep stock and not have water accumulate and begin to rust out the metal. I decided to locate the air valve inside the trunk, only a few inches away from the shocks. It made routing them super easy and they shouldn't interfere with any suspension items while driving. Also, when you place the valve close to the shocks, you can save the extra air line you didn't need and use it later if you end up rubbing a hole in the other ones. I have enough left over air line to replace the ones now several times. My only concern is that ALL fittings and air valve are plastic. They work fine now, but not sure how they'll work once they go through several winters and summers. When they degrade over time and need replacing, I'm going to buy brass ones as replacements. Also, one of the problems I ran into, albeit small, was expanding the shocks for installation. They come completely compressed and you must air them up to expand them. The only way I found to do that was to assemble the shocks completely outside the car, air them up, disassemble them, place the shocks in the holes made for them on the car (which requires you to compress them again to fit over the holes), air them up again, disassemble them once again, then route them on the car and permanently install them on the car. The instructions were very vague, so you just have to figure it out for yourself. It took awhile longer to install that way, but it worked out okay.

    Pros: They do a great job of leveling the ride. They fit my car perfectly

    Cons: Plastic parts. Vague directions
