Gabriel Air Shocks for 67-74 Chevy/GMC Vans

GABRIEL HIJACKERS AIR-ADJUSTABLE SHOCK ABSORBERS part # 49162

Has anyone tried these shocks?
http://gabriel.com/our-products/car-light-truck-van/pv-detailed-specs/?partnum=49162

They're suppose to fit...
67-74 Chevy G10
67-74 Chevy G20
67-74 GMC G15/G1500
67-74 GMC G25/G2500

After looking at pictures of these shocks they look to fat at the top to fit. They look like they will hit the side of the frame where the top bolt goes. Just wondering if anyone has tried these shocks and if they had any trouble installing them. I'd like to buy them for my 1968 GMC Van.

This is what Gabriel shows for my 68 GMC 1/2 Ton..

I seem to remember reading a thread on here years ago that said the part numbers for the back and fronts were switched? Like something got mixed-up in a master database somewhere..?  Anybody heard that before?

Anyway, here's what they show as options for my Van..

Thanks Pan,

I appreciate the offer, but I went ahead and ordered some online.

I ended-up buying Monroe shocks,

Front Part #: 37188
Back Part #: 34803

Once I get them on I'll post a follow-up to say how they fit.
