Hi guys,

Looking for a right rear shock absorber for my 1931 Roadster.
If you guys can help.

I found this on ebay but the arm seems short?
Will this one work even if I have to extend the arm?
Ebay part

That shock does not look like OEM to me. I do not think you would want two different shocks across from each other on your car.
