We are at, the sum of the parts are worth more than the car. Becareful guys, it might come to parting out a car for another.....

This is the only set of 4 unique boss 429 only truly NOS in their original autolite boxes with hardware sets I have ever seen or heard of in 40 years of collecting ford parts. These unique boss 429 shocks are different length than any other mustang shock and the repo or restamped boss 429 shocks are wrong lengths being regular shocks having the id #s restamped so their is NO replacements for a boss 429 shock u either have originals or restamped regular aftermarket wrong lenghts shocks. I will take on trade any used kkx original shocks.

Makes me think of another “Edism” - When asked where to find another the reply is - “just go to the Boss 429 shock aisle at Walmart and pick some up.”  ;D

So, now they are turning a normal forum chat from, shocks, to trolls?

OK The TT, Troll Talk is funny, but ST, Shock Talk is where this started, that is according to my seeing eye dog.
