Managed to get to O'Reilly's and picked up a pair of Monroe gas charged Plus (#32230) rear shocks (18.125" long)
for a 90 Aerostar 2WD. Pushed out both 12mm center bushings and rubbers separately. Pushed out the
TBar/rubber (together) and lower rubber from the 20.8" stock length KYB's. The KYB lower 1/2" stud mount was a bolt in.
Used the KYB rubbers and an assortment of sockets, vise and some Vaseline to get em back together. These won't be as
good as the KYB's but they are about 2-3/4" shorter. Should help my full droop x-pipe to driveshaft interference. Little
rattle can paint yet and good nuff.

Thanks Greg.........Good tip!
