I live in Italy and I'm searching for new shocks for my GT

Apart from KYB [ KG6413A (front) and KG552 (rear)], does exist another manufacturer who has in stock new shocks for the GT?

There is anyone who knows the codes of these shocks?

I have found only KONI:
80 1580Sport (front)
80 1997Sport (rear)

Thank you!

GT Shocks

GT Rear Gabriel Red Ryder #81753 from Pontiac Le Mans/I-Mark etc. Also any shocks that fit Isuzu Impulses 1983-87 both front and rear.

Speaking of shocks has anybody ever found a set for a lowered GT? I know OGTS sells them but the price is a bit staggering.

Those look like stock shocks to me? I need something like that but 2 inches shorter. OGTS is I think 550 for the 4. That seems a bit much.

Lowered shocks for the GT are ONLY required "IF" you go below
2 inches front or rear.

Thanks Dennis that is a question that I've been trying to get the answer to for a long time. It's even better coming from somebody that I know knows the answer.

No that was not aimed at you davegt27. The shocks you showed the link to looked like stock. I've always gotten the impression that when you lower the car stock will not work. Dennis is somebody that I have talked to a number of times as most of us have. I am very confident he was right when he corrected me and said stock will work.

shocks interchange

I've downloaded the OPEL INTERCHANGE by HOLLANDER COMPANY (1982) in this site:
www.timsopelgtsite.com

In this catalog:

item code 155 rear shock:
436393 exc below
436394 telescope
Opel '64-'66 kadett
Opel early '67 kadett (to ch #1134455)
Opel '69-'73 GT

item code 463 front shock:
342175
Opel '69-'73 GT

So with wich opel models the GT shares the shocks?
Only with kadett?

Monroe shocks works for me and it has a three year/60,000 km warranty. Koni is another great option too.
