Have you checked Gabriels web site? I think I downloaded their whole catalogue once.

Might also look at shocks on the Summittracing site or JEGs, but these will be more expensive than Gabriels. I used QA1 on my street rod.

I have checked the Gabriel site. the 1st interchange number I got was the same as the part counter guy showed me. that shock measures 10" compressed & 14 extended so I cant use them. for the second Monroe number,it tells me no part number found.
I was hoping some one worked parts & could verify a shock with the measurements I need for my coupe. most sites do not list the measurements to assist my search for another brand of shock.

Edelbrock site list the shock lengths and specs. of all their shocks.
