Rear is done, will finish the fronts tomorrow.

Thx a lot.
Your very welcome.

Just a little extra help with the elbow grease, makes bending the shock brackets an easy task.

The original shocks made by GM (delco) had split rubber bushings.

Gabrial shocks have always had single piece rubber bushings.

Six of one, half a dozen of the other, as it make no difference.
