    Front shock absorbers for a 1974/RX-4 - where online?

    Here's the thing.

    I want to rally my wagon when it's done, so I need something that's capable on gravel and dirt roads. I've been told KYB's are best bang for buck and I tend to agree. If I was looking toward road racing or circuits (which is what the wagon was used for previously) I'd go with Konis.

    Now, I have found a few places with KYBs for the rear of the wagon. What I can't find are inserts for the front struts. Are there any online suppliers (in the US or otherwise) that may have them?
    I'm about 90% decided to get KYB rears from RockAuto.com, but the ACDelco air shocks are sticking in my mind as they'd be handy for raising the rear (considering I need to carry a tent, esky and supplies on the longer rallies).
    I'll probably also get my tie rods and suspension bushes from them as Australian suppliers can only get inner TRW tie rods and the Superpro RX-4 bushes I bought - the top shackle bush is completely wrong to what I need.
    Thoughts?

    Moved. You'll probably have more luck in the Mazda Garage.

    thanks mate, I'll check those numbers more closely when I get back from OS.

    I had a look at your website too, is there a link for the manuals or are only the front covers scanned in?

    Dont try here in the U.S. Those inserts have been gone for a very long time. Your best best is New Zealand or Australia. Good luck!!!

    yep! they work now, thanks for that.


    Pertano: I think there's not much in NZ or Australia either. I'll have to wait for the new year to source some.

    Also, Kopsan, have you ever had a 929 station wagon rear seat out of a car? I can't seem to figure out how it should be bolted back in (ie with the brackets and without breaking the plastic covers)
