Looking for shocks for 1972 27' Overlander


Looking to find out who manufactures replacement shocks for the 1972 Overlander. Part number would be fabulous if you have it!

Thanks Nadine

Call Colin Hyde Restorations 518-578-7772, he'll get you fixed up. BTW on a 72 you will more than likely need axles - not just shocks. I have the same unit and these axles simply wear out which causes all kinds of problems. Shoot me a PM we can discuss it.

According the Out Of Doors Mart, the Gabriel part number is 0220003 and I ordered them from ODMRV. Here's the link to the catalog entry.

Oh, and having just put axles on my '75 Argosy, (I wrote about it here and here) I agree that if you have the original axles, you probably need new ones. For me, it made a big difference.

You may need new axles but it is also just as likely that you may not. When you put your shocks on watch the wheel drop when you jack the unit up. If the trailer has had an active life, and the axles were "exercised regularly" by use, they may be just fine.

Take a look at this Thread when you get a chance....

Airstream parts stocking dealers, will have those shocks.

The part number is not needed, as there is only "one".
