2 x Gaz GMO-368RBT – Ford Escort MKII Adjustable Front Monotube Gravel Shock
2 x Gaz GP6-2069 – Ford Escort MKII Adjustable Rear Monotube Gravel Shock

Current spring rates will be 250 lbs/in front and 225 lbs/in rear for the initial setup until I have a

Now the fun starts to build new lower control arms, top mounts, spacers and steering arms.
