Hi:
I have to replace the steering damper, and I am wondering if anyone has a recommendation as to get one brand new gas filled or get a "new" old one oil filled. I'm not sure if having my old one rebuilt is a good idea or not. Or if it is even possible. Does anyone have any recommendations as to best brands to go with and best places to buy? Thank you.

Hey Dannie, I just ordered a replacement steering damper for my 85. They're not complicated parts in terms of construction or role. It's basically a shock that doesn't return to extension. I don't see why you should bother doing anything fancy like a rebuild. They're $20 at Rock Auto for a "Gabriel" brand, which I don't recognize. But as I understand it, the damper isn't a "mission critical" part. I say buy a new cheap one.

Others, please correct me.

Thank you for your reply. I appreciate it very much. I ordered a Moog from Rock Auto. Thank you for helping me make the right decision.
