Lucymcdog, Your '65 will have vertical shocks. NAPA would be a good source.

Later years have horizontal shocks and those are a dealer only shock.

Then while replacing a tire I discovered that the RS shock was never installed. The mounting studs were immaculate. Got a shock ordered, got it on, and all the odd problems stopped immediately.

Well, except for traveling in Louisiana, but that's a whole different story.
Did you use an AS "horizontal" type shock?

All units built after 1966 are designed for a horizontal shock.
