Only if you can swap out the top end mounting. The QA1's you can so it will work, but a welded shock with non removable top won't.

I think I did find that a 70's Ford Pick Up rear shock matched with similar length and ends, someone may have also mentioned this, but can't remember who.

In thinking about and looking at old pics, the ts702 would only work if they can run inverted. I had it wrong, you would not need the stud top, but remove the tee mount and bolt through like stock.

The adjuster will be at the top, might be a pain to get at.

Sandy


Edit : looks like they can run inverted

*Hijack alert*

Sandy,
While this has nothing to do with the shocks you are selling, I didn't want to start a whole new thread just to comment about the Tiger gas pedal linkage upgrade you posted on your website. I built one. It's dramatically smoother and much more solid and more easily adjustable than the stock attempt.
Thanks for sharing your great design!
