Where can I find new bumper shock absorbers for the '77-up Devilles or Fleetwoods? I've searched a bit, but don't see them listed anywhere.

I can certify them pre owned if you like. I give all certified used parts the 5/50 protection plan. 5 feet/50 seconds, whichever comes first...

Are you looking for the suspension bump stops or the shock absorber busings? I think PST has both. Else, dealer or any local parts store will have them too.

He's looking for the bumper shocks. The things that hold the bumpers on. At least that's what I think he's talking about.

Yeah, the absorbers that the bumper bolts to. I was kinda thinking if I can't find replacements, I'd make a bracket to bolt the bumper to.

I used to think this was a good idea also. I even had one car with cop car bumper mounts on the front. After having been involved in a chain reaction highway accident, I think the 5MPH bumpers are really a good thing to have. If you look at the way these cars crunch, they spread the energy out over time. I never thought my Cadillac was that smart when it came to crunch time. Those shocks usually have telltale signs of being compressed. If you find a set from a junkyard just look for any watermarks.
