Triumph TR6 - TR6 front shock

Hello,

It is fall here and time to start my TR6 winter overhaul list.

One item I must replace is front shock absorber. I checked with many brands and only rallye type like Koni is available or "cheap vintage like" made who knows where, are available.

Is there an intermediate solution?

Cheers,

Jean G.

JG... I had new front shocks installed on my 76 in 08. My invoice does not give me a brand and part number so I will contact the supplier for details. I am quite happy with the performance but then again, I don't drive the car hard. Stand by.

Thanks Ken,

I will ask a catalog from them. As Canada post is efficient, it is not a big deal to order from west coast.

Cheers,

"Ken,The front shock for TR6 we stock is a reproduction of the factory unit therefore not branded. Part # GSA272, currently no stock more coming in about 2 weeks. Regards Ethan"

Hello Rod,

I already checked in KYB cat. and they do not list any shock for TR6. It is supposely available only for Spit, GT6, TR7-8.

It must a swap from a different car model. But from which one?

Thanks,

Jean-Try British Parts Northwest. They list Spax, GAZ, some sort of gas shock, and an oem type.
