What's the FoMoCo part number for the front shock absorbers of a 1984 Mercury Grand Marquis with standard suspension?

895

Asked by Jun 19, 2014 at 08:27 AM about the 1984 Mercury Grand Marquis

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Recently, I had the springs and shocks replaced on my 1984 Grand Marquis with Moog coils and Monroe gas-pressurized shocks front and rear.

I was very pleased initially with the ride quality the new units provided because the last thing I wanted was a firmer suspension; I wanted to restore the original ride of the Mercury.

Now, after covering approx. 1,000 miles, that comfy feeling is gone. The springs have plenty of travel, but the shocks seem noticeably harder, something I can't really explain.

In my experience, aftermarket shocks are ALWAYS harder than OEM shocks, but my garage man assured me that the Monroes would be okay. Well, he was wrong.

I'm now seriously considering swapping the shocks again. I know Motorcraft OEM shocks are still available for the Grand Marquis for the rear end. The FoMoCo part number is ASVH9 and they can be obtained from a number of suppliers including FoMoCo, of course.

What I'd like to do is to use OEM shocks on the front end, too, but I haven't been able to identify the original FoMoCo part number for them. Maybe they're no longer available, but I still want to try to locate them, if possible, in the hope that OEM shocks will restore the OEM ride.

Any ideas out there?

I have Monroe Struts on my Taurus and they are fine after many miles. You might want to have the shop check them out or the other parts of the suspension. I didn't replace the springs, and kept the originals. Seems a waste to swap new shocks/struts at 1K miles.
