    yeah, def worthwhile..that's how I sourced the shocks for my pickup, since I kinda didn't think about that BEFORE I built stuff
  8. NAPA gets a new updated book every year. I use to get their old ones for free. Give it a shot. The book also shows bushings and suspension parts. The bushings and some tierod ends have a similar cross-reference by dimensions...a very nice book to have for building hotrods.

    I think this would be an extremely useful tool to have around.

    For those of you that don't have a scanner or don't know how to use one.

    Try to take a picture of the page - with a 1/2 decent camera it should come out good enough to see.

    Easiest would be with a digital but you could do it with a 35 and have the pictures developed and put onto a CD.

    (I do this for work - I take pictures of paperwork and attach them to "electronic files" - works good for me anyway.)

  11. tis the season for all catolog updates
    hand your parts guy a fiver and ask for a set of the new ones , his old masters and his old dirty torn ones.. and the old box full from under the counter from his suppliers ... dont forget the $ price pages
    heck ...just ask for a jobber set and give him your business card
    i get alot of use ful \books at the back to the 50s show about 30 lbs worth... just ask the vendor even if they are marked $5 they hand them out

    napa interchnges are like the rosetta stone ... understand how to use these and "squirrel" will have to move over..
    if the hamb odex were all of these old books cross referenced with a hollandar too
    RYAN would be more golden.
    good old parts guys are alot like a bad cut at first painful ...
    then oozing ...
    have you covered..

    I've bought several sets of shocks that way, the local auto parts 'parts guys' (and I use the term VERY loosely) seemd awe struck.

    Also like Rocky said, if you can get ahold of any of the old paper catalogs there is a world of good stuff in the back of a lot of them, like part # cross references and picture ID sections.

    Lots of useful info here. Monroe has all of their current stuff in an online catalog here:

    And this chart shows the different mounting styles available(loop mounts, stem mounts, stud mounts, etc) with the code so you can figure out if the shock you found has the correct style mounts that you need:

    The above chart also shows the dimensions of the different loop end shocks, as far as the sleeve size for the bolt to go thru and all that good stuff.
    It is the same (I think) as what squirrel posted, just the current version. Real handy stuff though

    I thought I'd seen that stuff on the internet before, but I'm not very good about saving those links or remember which is what. A book is pretty easy to see sitting there on the shelf :)

    great info on those shocks! anything with body size? I've ordered out of the catalog before and gotten a large body (truck I'm guessing) shock. I need to get a replacement small body shock
