Hey folks got the shocks coming the garage wants 366 for the front 400 for the back installed , I didn’t think it would be so much , has anybody put shocks on , how hard is it ? I think I could manage the rears but the fronts scare me
Find another garage that deals with old cars. That sounds crazy what they want. The rears are easy and I did it myself at home but the fronts I took it to my buddys with a lift and they muscled them in without taking anything apart.

Here are a few pics 69mopar man. I am sorry I don't have a Gallery or Showcase spot as I could never get it to take my pics. The engine was just installed a week or so ago. It is a 440 stroker bored .030 and stroked to 505 cubes. It is in the process of being installed in the pics. It has 440 source Stealth aluminum heads which look stock when painted and hence the name ,they are ported, Holley single plane aluminum intake [for carb/hood clearance] ,as well as aluminum water pump and housing ,custom ground roller [hydraulic roller] cam by Dwayne Porter to work with HP cast iron manifolds. Bla bla bla and I wanted it to look as if it came from the factory. Big thanks to @FURYGT and @MEV for their inspiration as they really influenced me to go this route. {Look them up here on this forum] With highway gears [3.23] this thing pulls hard on pump piss now and I can putts around town in traffic with power brakes and not even come close to getting a warm/hot engine and cruise the highway with ease.

Glad to see you chose a formal roof for a sleeper with that 505. Reminds me just a little of Butches Hemi with the steelies and dog dishes with 275 rears. Looks bad*ss. Do you have a thread of the build on here?

Thanks for the compliments. No I do not have a thread on the build of the car here. I did all my research ,got advice, asked questions here though and on FBBO. The car was in very good shape when I got it in 2015. There are a few threads on the engine possibilities I participated in or opened the topic.
