    Not a very common car. Wish I could help. They might make a bolt on kit for these or you can take some measurements and get creative and fab something up. You can try Ridetech or airbaggit for kits. Try a Google search.

    If it is rear coil, pull the shocks, springs, bumpstops, and whatever else keeps the axle from hitting the rear end. Then jack the rear end up until it hits the rails and measure between spring pads. Now subtract the airbag compressed height, and 3/8 for airbag plates (3/16 on the bottom and 3/16 on top) and you will be left with the required cup height. If it is leaf, four link it. Good luck.

    Those cups look good, man. As far as front shocks go, you are on your own. A bunch of ways to do it. You can get wierd and scroll through Monroe's entire catalog for mounting options, as well as compressed and extended lengths, then make a list and search the part numbers for applications. Then, find something designed for a car or truck close to your car's weight and figure out how to mount them. You could also take the shocks that were on the car and try to make up some brackets to mount them. Sometimes original shocks are difficult to relocate due to how they mount. Either way, it is always a fun, self doubt inducing project. For some reason I think those are stem top and bottom. If so, relocation should be pretty straight forward. Just take measurements between various points according to compressed and extended shock dimensions while cycling the suspension. Angle and other factors influence how they act, but just having them mounted will improve the ride.

    Looks like a fun car.
