I now need to replace all 4 shocks on the Cougar. The front drivers has the rubber bushing all worn out and the knock is very audible. While at it I will do all 4. My ride is a 1969 XR7 vert S code close ratio 4 speed w/heavy duty suspension on it. Power disc up front and drums in the rear.

I checked at NAPA yesterday but they don't have the heavy duty suspension shocks available.

Are there some suggestions for:
1----where to get them
2----Best ones available--I don't need to go concourse here, but if there is a close model available to what came stock and is a good shock, I'm in.
3----I believe the original color would have been black, or is it gold color? I could always paint them to match.

Thank you in advance for your help.

Swapped out the fronts yesterday. Pretty straight forward job. The rears will be next when time opens up in the schedule.

Thanks.
