Heavy-duty shocks for '55 Clipper
Home away from home
Home away from home

Craig the Clipper Man
See User information
I have a 1955 Clipper Custom with a Torsion-Level system that never fails to let me down. I have given up on the self-leveling motor because no matter what I do, it only works for a short time and then conks out, leaving me with the tail high or low. I have adjusted the riding height to where I am satisfied and will leave it at that.

It is clear that the shocks on the car are failing and need to be replaced. One problem that I now have absent the self-leveler is that when folks ride in the back seat, the back end sinks way down. So, what I want to find out is this: Are there heavy-duty rear shocks with coils that can work on my car? I don't see the front shocks as a particular problem, but I imagine that heavy-duty shocks for the front would compensate for the mediocre torsion bar setup.

I would appreciate any and all suggestions.

You can make a lot of really neat things from the parts left over after you rebuild your engine ...
