    maybe the moderator/administration would like to make this post a sticky to make it easy to research?
    thought I would make a new post with all the shock #'s that supposedly will fit the early 1/4 ton trailers up to but NOT including M416 trailers. not sure if these will work on M100 trailers either. credit goes to Tony Norton of the G503 forum for the below information (the information was posted for shocks for WWll Jeeps. for the trailers we would use the same shocks as the front of a Jeep).


    Gabriel still makes the 82007 (Rear), but has discontinued the 82014 (Front). Both these shocks were in their Classic line. They are gas filled shocks.

    Current Gabriel catalogs do not list any of their shocks in the military jeep application. However, if you go back to a 1999 catalog you will see an entry listed for:

    Willys Jeep M-Series 1941-1949 (including the Model GPW built by Ford)

    Specifications on the 82014 for the front are:
    17.63” Extended Length
    11.37” Collapsed Length
    EB 1 Bushing (Ring mount with the rubber bushing having a 5/8” hole.)

    Specifications on the 82007 for the rear are:
    18.33” Extended Length
    11.38” Collapsed Length
    EB 1 Bushing (Ring mount with the rubber bushing having a 5/8” hole.)

    As you can see the difference between the shocks is basically the extended length, with the 007 shock being 0.70” longer than the 014 shock. I would think that given these measurements, that the 82007 could be used at all four corners, but the Gabriel representative said that he could not legally confirm or deny this, and one would do so at their own risk.

    There is another number available as 81676 in the Guardian model that can be substituted for the discontinued 82014. Both models are gas filled shocks. The specifications on the 81676 are:
    17.73” Extended Length
    11.12” Collapsed Length
    EB 1 Bushing (Ring mount with the rubber bushing having a 5/8” hole.)

    The 81676 is 0.10” longer extended and .0.25” shorter collapsed than the 82014.
    The 82007 is 0.70” longer extended and .0.01” shorter collapsed than the 82014.

    The Classic line of shocks in designed to emulate the operation of OEM type shocks for vintage vehicles, whereas the Guardian line of shocks is an OEM replacement for passenger cars.

    Gabriel shocks are currently stocked by Carquest Auto Parts. You can get the 82007 Classic shocks by ordering that number from Carquest. To get the 81676 Guardian shock from Carquest, you must order number 47677.

    I have found three postings for Monroe shocks:
    59017 (info is real sketchy on this #)
    32207 (info is real sketchy on this #)
    G5401MIL Gas Adjust (info is sketchy on this #)

    as for upper shock mounts from what I can determine from my research any upper mounts from a WWll to M416 trailer will work as they all look the same, the only difference is that the WWll Bantam trailers used a threaded stud and Willys, M100, M416 used a stud with a hole for a cotter key and washer.
    if anyone has any other information and part numbers or find the above numbers are incorrect or not available please add to this.
