Anyone know where I can get new shocks for my observer seat? They look to be about ten inches long, but I'd like to get some a little longer.

You can get these at just about any auto part store. I'd do a little research first and get the numbers off of your originals and see what kind of weight they are rated for. Once you know that, then you can select your length and make shure that the mounts are the same as the originals.

I think they vary depending on the length and pressure. I got my motorbox shock replacements from NAPA for $23 a pop.

I don't know what the PSI is, I'd have to look. I'd like for them to be a few inches longer, so I don't have to bend down as much to get under there. (I know I'm lazy) I keep a lot of gear in that compartment. I will shop around and find something that will work.

While I'm on the topic. The bracket that the seat swivels on is broken (the rivet has popped off). Is this an MC part, or will I have to fabricate one?
