Where did you pick up the shock extenders, what size, and how much?

Thanks!

No one had them in stock so I had to order them thru Advance Auto. They were $12.99 minus the 20% coupon I found on the Internet for ordering on line. The part number was 1290 or 1290a if you want to pay extra for the steel extenders. I didn't. I guess they are generic to the stud type shocks. I just took the nut off the bottom of the shock, retracted the shock to clear the bracket, and screwed the extender onto the end of the shock. Piece of cake. Kind of hard to believe that something as simple as these extenders could cost that much, but it beats having to purchase new shocks. My shocks seemed to be fine, and they are probably 15 years old. Like I said in my previous post, the cart rides a 100% better.

Yep, those are the ones that I used. Pretty simple and seem to fill the ticket for what I needed. Made a big difference.
