Does anyone have a Gen 1 car , wagon or BRAT with the "ORIGINAL" rear shocks on it? They were made byTokico and have the Subaru stamp on them. It is on the top section of the shock. You can turn it with your had to locate the stampings.

I need the part #s marked on the shocks. If you get a chance to look, I would appreciate knowing what is marked on the shock.

Thanks!

Todd

I will take a look at mine when it stops raining, I doubt they've ever been replaced.

I finally looked at mine (sorry it took me so long), but they state that they're "made in the USA", which doesn't help much. I tried.

Thanks for checking Mia.

I really need the original #s from Gen 1 cars, wagons or BRATs. They all have the same ones.

When I get back to the shop to finish up the 78, I'll take a look. Hard to tell - maybe I'll get lucky.

Yes..I need the number on the ORIGINAL factory shocks on ANY subaru from 1974-1979, including BRATs and 4WDs. (up to 81 on the BRATs) They are all the same.
