Theres a seller on US EBay selling sets of unused Gabriel shock absorbers for 57 Ranchero's. but he won't ship outside the US. Russ at R & R has agreed to bring them in for me if I ship them to his contact in the US. No problem! But there is......

EBay won't let me buy the shock absorbers as my account is outside of the US, I get an error message when I try to buy them.

Is there a way round this? I have contacted the seller, but had no response. I just want to buy them, ship to Russ's contact in NJ and get the home!

Sign up to us ebay. BTW, when I see something that's listed as US only, I email the seller and they often will ship to you if you ask them.

If I remember rightly, when I signed up to US ebay some years ago, I had to use an american bank account for a small sum to be taken to prove legibility.
Luckily enough, I used my lady friends one from Nth Carolina.

If all else fails give me a shout and I'll get a buddy in CA to buy and forward them over here , only trouble is paying 2 lots of postage but he will mark them down as used car parts @ $15

Thanks folks. The seller hasn't responded to my last question and now has his account set so that you can only answer the EBay standard question selections, I just get an error message when I select the other option to contact the seller. Bit of a shit really as the set of four shocks were about $89. I did try to find a comparison/interchangability site to see if something European used similar sized ones, but I drew a blank. Someone recommended one but it didn't have enough size detail on it.

Try putting request for the shocks u need in the ''stuff wanted'' section. Maybe with some pics and dimensions. There's lots of knowledgable blokes on here I'm sure someone will have some Idea's.
..Nige..
I hasten to add I've got some Monroe's to sell for a light truck so if you post some size's and how they're fitted/attached you might be in luck ...............:tup:

Have you tried Rock Auto? They seem to keep a good range of stuff, and are cheap. I'd say, if he doesn't want to help his county's balance of payments with a few exports (although probably of Chinese-made tat), them fuck 'im. I don't waste time on that sort of seller.

Y'know what. I think by now I would have given him a wide berth.
Can you imagine trying to get a refund if they don't turn up?
