I can find a listing for air shocks for fb and ek ute but no listing for FC. Has anyone had any experience? Will Fb Ek fit an FC. If not what mods are needed?

Thanks Dave

Yes.  All rear shock absorbers from FE to HZ (and probably FJ too) have the same mounts and will interchange.

But I would advise against fitting air shocks to anything before an HK.  The top mounts in FE-HR will fatigue-crack and then tear out.

Remember: if your Holden's not leaking oil, it doesn't have any.

Thanks for the information, I wasn't aware of the fatigue issue. But as I am doing a complete rebuild on the ute, I will reinforce the rear shock mounts.

Thanks Dave
