rear shocks

I have a 1967 Olds Toronado, (front wheel drive ). Amazing car ! The rear axle has 2 verticle shocks , PLUS, 2 horizontal shocks. The problem is, nobody stocks the horizontal shocks anymore, including Fusick, Year one, Kanter, AND, Delco, etc. My question to you guys is :::::: would this shock be just a normal shock off the shelf, OR would be a special ratio thing ? So if I took it to NAPA or some one abd tried to match it up ???? I haven't taken it out yet , but it just appears to be a smaller version of a regular shock.

Olds was way ahead of their time. Ford adopted this on their Mustang around 2000 and called it the quad shock. Not that I'm saying that they're interchangeable though.

thanks Art, for your comments, , sorry for the delay in responding here, been having some computor problems lately..... I finally did get around to removing the horizontal shocks, which feel like they are still good , got the part number off them, Delco , will try to match them up one of these days,............trying to get that 'caddillac' ride , I think the problem is... the new shocks I did put on, are either the wrong ratios, or new shocks are just too stiff.........thanks
