SEALS for Shock Absorbers - FS-114

"The National Federal Mogul numbers for front shock seals are:
        471267 (.875 x 1.375 x .25) and
        470954 (.750 x 1.25 x .25).
The dimensions are in inches for seal I.D. x seal O.D. x thickness."

The rest of the story is, you need a strong press to remove the press fit shaft from a shock absorber and to reassemble it. If the shaft is grooved or pitted the new seal may not last long, so the shaft may beed machining or may need a SpeedySleeve for repair.
