Koni shock parts
« on: September 10, 2020, 07:57:24 AM »
Hi All

I'm still working away on CSX2177 attempting to collect and restore back the koni shock components removed from the car sometime in the 1980's/90's. While I've managed to locate and purchase a set of the correct shocks, I'm still in need of a few hardware items needed to prepare for the installation. For example, I have no washers, nuts and I'm missing one bump stop. Does anyone know where I might find any of these items either original or reproduced? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Dan Patch   kansas city has big inventory of old shocks and he rebuilds shocks. I been working with him for years on ford shocks and been to his shop just down the road from one of my brothers business.

Wayne,

Jay Cushman aka “papajoe5557” Is currently running an eBay auction #114184170125 For a set of Cobra front Koni’s. Very reasonable at $399.99 for the pair. I checked them against the original ones we have in CSX2179 (see pics) they look the same. Is CSX2177 a rack and pinion or worm and sector car? Not that it makes a difference. I can look it up but... Jay might have pieces or parts for it.
The pic of the shock you posted does not look like the one in CSX2079, but they are different cars. Check out Jay’s eBay auction.

Cheers,
~Earl J

Earl,

I'd be interested in other technical details regarding 2179 as I'm only two cars earlier. By the way, I only posted a pic of one of the rear shocks as my fronts I got from Jay and they look like your pic.

Wayne,

Correction, CSX2079 not 2179. I was thinking of your car while I was typing. Sorry, my error. I didn’t catch Terry K (6s2055) either, so I sent him a PM.

Cheers,
