I just bought a 28,000 mile 1969 cougar Dearborn Mar 69 build with a 351W 2v. It still has its original rear shocks did with part number of C9WY-18080-AA. I can’t find any reference material if these are the shocks that would also be correct for 1970 BOSS 302? Any help would be greatly appreciated

Cougar rear shocks are longer than a Mustang because of the longer wheelbase.

Actually they are longer because the rear spring length is longer, which means the rear axle moves further up and down, requiring longer shocks. The shocks being discussed might be proper for a Boss 302 Cougar. The number stamped on the shock is not the part number. It is an engineering number. The Mercury Master Parts Catalog has a shock absorber cross reference chart that shows which shock absorber part number is used for each of the various engineering numbers and what the replacement shock absorber kit might be.

Cougar shocks are too long for Mustang in any case.

Thank you all for the information. I do know a couple Eliminator people who might be interested in these.
