    From what I understand, P&J's hold the pattern rights and therefor are just about the only ones manufacturing them. I can't confirm or deny that though so take it with a grain of salt.

    Bilstein shocks makes some too. They are supposed to work a lot better than the P&J shocks. I am about to buy some.

  7. I went through the same search last year for my shocks. Lots of time on the Monroe site and calling several shock company. In the end I bought the P&J shock anyway.:(

    Yes, I recommend these. They are the same dimensions as the P&J's but are gas charged and work better in my opinion. They are also Made in the USA, and cheaper.

    I just recently purchased short shocks for the front of my Model A build. Monroe 5752 from O'Rielly's $22.00 each. They are for early 50's Jeep: 49-50 Plymouth early 50's VW bus.

    Pro shocks makes them under the part number SM 300. 7.5 closed and 10.5 extended. Made in the USA. Cost for a pair under $90.00. They come with 1/2 inch sleeves.
