I am satisfied with these Monroe shocks.

Ride is good...

So if your looking for shocks.for a 56

Give these a try.

When compressed they are Packard spec.

Extended. 1/4 inch short.

These look like a great alternative to the "Gabriel" no-name shocks that are made in Mexico. Pretty underwhelming...
Thanks for posting up!

These shocks are NOT suitable for a Torsion Level Packard. They are heavy
duty and are TOO STIFF. Torsion Level
Packards use a shock with a 1" internal piston. Gabriel and Monroe do not make
shocks that light duty, which is what TL Packards should have. USE KAYABA (KYB)
front KYB 343127, rear KYB 343149. This set will fit perfectly all 1956 Packards and Clippers. For 1955 models, the rear shocks will fit fine, but the front shocks must be modified. Lop off the lower cross bar and weld in its place a stud from any shock.

Dwight I bought yours shocks and they are way to floaty..

Plus . the lower bar. Is to short.

These are not stiff.

Packard had 2 types of bars. One light one heavy duty

And shocks. One light one heavy duty.

The shock was a heavier.one. .. It's in the parts book.

Let the owner decide. .

I have the blueprints.
