All our rebuilt shock absorbers are available as Standard or Heavy Duty Rebuilds. Prices listed are exchange prices for Standard Rebuilds (for Heavy Duty Upgrade add $10.00 per shock).

Rebuild and Return Yours is also available, please add $20.00 per shock.

FRONT SHOCKS ONLY

Highly Recommended (for Austin Healey, Sprite/Midget, MGB only): Always replace rubber bushings between front shock and kingpin. These critically overlooked bushings are almost always worn out. Please request these bushings with every front shock you order. $4.50 ea. (2 required per shock)

(*) Also available:

Kingpin (swivel axle) rebushing and/or rebuilding (Big Healey, MGTD/TF, MGA, MGB, Midget/Sprite) 
- Rebuilt lower A-arms (Midget/Sprite)

REAR SHOCKS ONLY

Please Check: A rebuilt shock won't compensate for a connecting link with worn or loose bushings. They should be tight and wobble free. $20-$65 per link (outright, except 1953-62 Austin Healey exchange only).
