    Those are either old Ford mirrors, or a pair of universal mirrors from a parts store.

    Are they in bad shape or something? I think they look good on the truck.

    As far as im aware mine is completely 40 years old. Im the 4th owner. I can tell you for certain the front shocks and springs are shot. Real soft and low. And the rear shocks are still factory, they have the spiral goove in the tube. (Not sure how to explain it)

    I know what you mean
    I thought mine was dead shocks in the rear so i swapped them
    Waste of moneymade no difference
    So i figure might as well put money towards the link mans the front is so spongy that I get bad bump steer at speeds
    (80ish)
