Can anyone tell me the ORIGINAL PART NUMBER for the rear AC DELCO shocks on a 76 Cadillac Coupe DeVille?

I have heard they were OIL charged instead of gas charged.....for a better ride?!

Originals I believe were non gas, standard of the day. They all have oil, but instead of air in the other chambers, they use nitrogen, which is pressurized to reduce the oil/air aireation.

Check with AMES performance, they might have the proper 1976 shocks for GM B/C/D cars. They cater to Pontiac's, but call and talk to them, they know their stuff....
