Does anyone happen to know a part number for shocks for a 1962 26' Overlander twin axle?

Present day Airstream shocks fit the bill.

Our part number is 12416.

I would like to get them by friday. I am located in Ontario Canada. It has been my experience that getting parts from Can-Am or via United States the minimum time is 2 weeks and the price is high. Is there an auto part number that is equal?

I recently used the Napa ones on a 77 and they work fine.

Shocks

NAPA or any other parts distributor, DO NOT have the correct shock for any Airstream or Argosy trailer that uses horizontal shocks.

You cannot use a vertical shock in place of a horizontal shocks.

This is as per Airstream and Henschen, not us.
