Hi All,

I have a general question. . . are manual and automatic transmissions
interchangeable? Like, for instance, if you had a Ranger with an automatic
installed and you were having problems with it and you wanted to put a
standard in so you could work on it yourself could you?

I need to replace all four shocks on my truck (and maybe add a steering
dampener) I wanted to get Monroe Sensa tracs, but the guys at the local tire
shop said Monroe doesn't make any for my truck (83 3/4 ton 4x4 ifs) Is
there a comparable shock similar in price and such to the Monroe? I looked
into KYB like someone mentioned and they were about 60.00 apiece, which is
almost double what the monroes were. Also where do you put the other end of
the steering damper, (I know one end is attached to the linkage, but didn't
see where to put the other end.
P.S. the Manager at NAPA got back to town and called me back and he said
that with his experience on the flashers, he wanted more noise and found a
heavy duty flasher, but it didn't make it any louder. He can order one for
me to try, but he didn't get any results with it. Does the noise level just
depend on the year of truck I have?
