The results I got from searching were all for offroad or newer gen shocks, so that is why I ask.

I think my shocks are original, they're definately at the end of their intended life expectancy.

Given how capable stock Subarus are on and offroad I think that OEM shocks (I don't suppose I could get them from Subaru still?) will do just fine. The rare wheeling trip I make is light and I never haul very heavy loads.

Do any of the big names like Monroe make OEM shocks for my Brat?
