SW, No I don't know for sure. I always thought that it was the springs that gave the car height, and the shocks just controlled the bouncing of the springs. Though the car does hit the bumps rather hard. Of course some of this is simply because the body is old, but you may be right about the shocks. They do look fairly easy to get off. I'll have to look at them again. Unfortunately here in NJ, it has become to cold to work outside for any length. For the last couple of weeks it has routinely be in the 30's during the day.
