OK, so I have done tons of searching/researching about stock shocks.
It seems that for '74 cars, the shocks are Telecars, and the fronts were black and the rears were dark blue? or mediujm blue?
Rocky's picture above seems to show a black one and a medium blue one...?
Here is an old post:"
So should the front black Telecar shocks be left black? If they are adjustable, what is the procedure for setting them up? I've disassembled the coil over and have found them to have minimal resistance to compression, but maximum resistance to extension.
