I would like to do both front and back in my 74 Luxus. Does anyone have the part numbers from the ones they used?

There are quite a few KYB GR2 out there and they even have a NEW style under that name.

I will mostlikely do all the bushings, etc at the same time. Anyone have any suggestions as to what to replace for a total package?

Just yesterday I was at Van's Auto Parts and asked them about a listing for the GT. He told me both front and back. They are achain down here in TX.
They should have listings for the Manta too.

Shocks

I just did some research and found that it looks like a 1989 Pontiac Sunbird will fit the rear as well. I havent done it yet though so I can't sware to what it will feel like. But it has the same mounts top and bottom and is within a 1/2" of overall length.

I stock AC/Delco shocks for the front and rear, and have some GR2 for the front as well.

I also have a set of old Koni Red for the front.

As for a set, until I know what the Sunbird shocks feel like I am not sure what I would put in the rear. Front I would put the Koni Red or the GR2.
