They could be the ones, the guy said they were shorter than normal gas gt's and are used for lower springs today so im guessing they are it.

Thanks mate do you by anychance have the part number for those??

Whats a normal gas GT? They come in different lengths depending on the application.

The ones used for stock application, or so he said, he quoted $418 for the front pair which i think is a bit steep, and 180 for the rears which i think aint soo bad, if i can get the part numbers for them, i get good deals from repco because i work next door, they usualy give imbetween staff and trade depending on the item.

but any who that seems to be the question at hand, finding the part numbers for these shocks, if any one coulod supply a part # i may even come to your hoose and give you a little sexy time :P:P

Cheers guys

PM responded to.
Additional note: I didn't know that these shocks came in different
lengths. I figure the ones I have and the price I quoted was for
just some "standard" ones, as I'm running 'low' springs only.

Hope you get it sorted.

Monroe dont make a shortened shock even though they say suits "lowered vehicles" the simmply allow 30mm more travel than stock height. You will notice all parts numbers are the same for standard and lowered.

Those prices are probably about right in full recomended retail sense.

Your not going to find part numnbers for Monroe golds as no such thing exist. There either GT Gas, Sensatrac or the air pump up ones (I forget the name). You can find the part numbers for them on the Monroe website in there product catalogue.
