Shock Installation
When removing and installing all Corvair shocks, be sure to support the suspension as the shock is all that really
keeps the coil spring from ying out. Also, on installation, if most of the weight is not on the coil spring you may
not tighten the top nut enough to sufciently compress the top bushings. This will lead to a very bouncy ride.

NEW Clark Hi-Tech Progressive Shock Absorbers
These high quality, multi-shim (self adjusting) shocks are specially designed for Corvairs. All mounting and bushings are exactly like
the factory original shocks and use all the original mounting bolts (order separately). The “regular” shocks are slightly firmer than
the factory stock shocks and the “gas” shocks are slightly firmer than the “regular” shocks – giving excellent control for more spirited
driving. (1965-69 fronts still need to order C109R special bushings). Full info, see page 137.
