I posted this in another thread but this seems like the most appropriate place for it.

Here are the part numbers for the shocks for the '66 Toro and the prices from Rock Auto.

Front - KYB - KG4501 - $26.79
Rear Vertical - Gabriel - 82040 - $20.79
Rear Horizontal - Gabriel - 82139 - $20.79
Steering Damper - Gabriel - 14010 - $15.47

That's good to know. I bought all mine from Rock Auto and they didn't carry the Gabriels for the front so I bought the KYB. So far I'm pleased with all of them.

I suspect the ride is a lot firmer with these modern gas shocks than it would be if I used Fusick's original style hydraulic shocks.

Of course compared to my '56 Cadillac everything is a lot firmer.
