I have a 1977 coupe, it has been sitting for about 12 years... the shocks were replaced around 15 years ago... less then 1000 miles since. Do shocks wear out just from sitting? The shocks are Monroe sensatrack (gas). They look good, I can't see any leaks, but should they be replaced?

when sitting for so long the shafts can rust up then chew out seals when used thus losing gas and oil. See if you can see the shafts for any rusting or just drive it and see if they start to leak:thumbsup:

thanks for the info, my original thought was just to drive it and see how it rides...but my dad wanted to replace them right away. :cheers:
