On-Topic, I believe the shocks need to be replaced, and during my "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" expeditions, my main take was the shocks are shot, and whatever new ones will replace them should have a gentle intake (compression) and a very firm extension. Or should I have that the other way around?
Jeff, I have a used set of OME shocks for a 60 for sale. If you want to throw them on and try them out for a few days let me know...if you don't like them you can just pull them off and know that you want something else. I found they made my 60 ride and corner MUCH better than the old stock shocks that came on my truck. Let me know.
