1985 series 3 Monroe rear shocks

Post by Richardnz » Fri Feb 28, 2020 1:12 pm

Hi guys,
Does anyone know if Monroe T1332 shocks will fit the rear of my series 3 rx7? I’m getting conflicting information. Photo attached.

I can't find a single RX7 reference back to that part number. I wouldn't be pulling the trigger on those.

Series 1 thru Series 3 used the same rear shocks.

Hey KiwiDave I ordered the shocks from RockAuto on Monday night and they arrived this morning. Unbelievable. Can’t even send a letter from Auckland to Hamilton in that time 😂

LOL Go figure! The dark world of the postal / delivery services of the World.

What did you end up getting from RockAuto .. Gabriel or KYB?

Hi Dave,

Apologies for the late reply. I got KYB shocks. I haven't had them fitted yet as all mechanics are closed due to the lockdown. I'm thinking about trying to get back to Auckland as the job situation here is a bit dire. I want to go for a drive in this beautiful weather but I can't justify it during this lockdown. I'm thinking about buying a few more things from RockAuto as it was a quick and relatively inexpensive process.
