    Default Bouncy R15TS

    I drove my R15TS a couple of days ago and it was very bouncy so Iassume the back shock absorbers are in need of replacment.

    I have two pairs of Gabriel shock absorbers at home. One pair are stamped 722849 and the other pair are styamped 722850. Can anyone tell me if these are suitable for my Renault 15TS?

    assuming that you don't wish to take Ray's advice and that you don't get answers here, it sounds from the sequential numbers that one pair might be fronts and the other, rears. So, why not just pull the old ones out and see which pair looks the same in physical make-up and try the ones that seem right.

    It might also be that, if someone like Burson's sells that brand, they'd have a database that went that far back and would be kind enough to look them up for you (especially if you have sitting on the counter something like a container of oil which hasn't yet been paid for :-)

    Try phoning Gabriel Australia 1800 645 609. Or email gabriel@brandlines.com.au
    I agree with Ray and don't really rate Gabriel, but I am sure they will be better than worn out 40 year old stockers. Changing the fronts will require use of a tool to hold the springs up in place whilst the shock is changed.

    Those front springs are seriously dangerous if not done the right way, in case you don't know. Seriously....
