Subject: FTE Pre61 - Shock selection after lowering F-1

My sixteen year old son has a '48 F-1. He recently purchased and installed
mono-leaf springs to lower the truck. Gonna be a hot rod. The springs lower the
vehicle approximately 4". We are having trouble finding repacement shocks for the
rear. Sitting height (length) of the old shocks, with new springs (and without
the bed/fenders), is 13.75". Compressed length of new shocks would probably be 10
inches and extended length probably 16. (Best guesstimate. Hope I have
described this properly.)

Guys at auto-parts store are confused. Can't identify appropriate relacement.
Any suggestions? thanks in advance.

I suggest calling Sy at Mid-Fifty's (1-800-252-1956) or, if you really
want to go fancy call Edelbrock to see if they can fit some of thier new
IAS shocks, that's what I'm gonna do. - Mick
