The old shock has been in there for about 10 years, and kind of rusty. I could check the dimensions once it is out, but I was trying to avoid removing it before I get the new ones so I don't have to reinstall the old one. I believe it was a KYB. And I remember it was much more expensive than the standard because it was shorter and less common.

I'm getting ready to replace the rear shocks when the weather warms up. Thought I'd get new mounting bolts, just in case, but they don't seem to be available anywhere online. Anyone found these, or is it likely I won't even need them?

Likely you won’t need new ones

Thanks, Oldblue. I was hoping for that along with a little penetrating oil and my electric impact gun. I'm also going to replace the front struts with quick-struts; looks like a fairly easy job also.
