Trying to source some in USA.

I dont want to pay shipping from overseas.

Anyone have any?

For $15 each, rockauto has Suzuki samauri shocks seem very close in short/extended length to original ones but 25mm shorter in extended length.

Monroe 32207. $40 a pair with shipping included. Hope they work. Ute is lowered with blocks.

I might take the blocks out though to run my 15x9s

Good find

Buy Monroe 32207

Monroe 32207 is for:
* 1993-2002 Nissan Quest/Mercury Villager van
* 1977-1978 Mitsubishi/Dodge/Plymouth Colt
* 1976-1980 Mitusishis/Plymouth Arrow
* 1984-1987 Hyundai Pony
* 1975-1983 Honda Civic
* 1954-1955 Ford F100
* 1941-1947 Dodge WC
* 1948-1950 Dodge Truck/B1/B2
* 1969-1974 Jeep DJ5
* 1973-1974 Jeep FJ8 (truck)
* 1986-1995 Suzuki Samurai
* 1960-1984 Toyoda Land Cruiser (front)

SPECS Monroe.com
* Compressed Length 11.250" (11.3" B120 spec)
* Extended Length 17.875" (18.43")
So just ensure that your ute's bump stops are in good shape and these Monroes should work fine. These Monroes don't have an internal bump stop so it's important not to overcompress them

* Loop Bushing Mount - 5/8" Bushing ID (15.875mm)
What size are the B120 mounting studs?

* 1.5/16" Bushing OAL
32mm is the B120 ones I think, almost exactly the same

Lowering with block doesn't change the shock-to-bumpstop distance so they should be fine with compressed length. The extended length does change with blocks so the rear axle may hang off the shock on large bumps. Another question is how stiff are they? Well the ute rear springs are stiff anyways

Fits perfect. Was easy to change out.

Ride is good. Has improved greatly over old worn out shocks. Haven't got to drive it more than a few miles so far. But from my local bumpy roads it handles well as I said.
