I’m getting my axle back in this week after doing the P30 spindle swap. I need to get new shock absorbers. Can anyone tell me where I can find a set? Part numbers? I have a 56 4500 short school bus. Thanks.

If you still have the original shocks you can measure the compressed and extended lengths and call Monroe's tech line and they can convert to a modern number...I just did this for my M38A1 Willys Jeep.

If you still have the old ones there were numbers stamped on my old ones that helped me.

I did try that, but did not get much info come up on a search. I will try Mike's suggestion and see what I find out.
