1954 Olds 88 Rear Shocks...what will work

Looking for a pair of rear shocks for my 1954 Oldsmobile 88 and was hoping that you guys might be able to help out. Found several sites that suggest the Monroe 31000 and the Gabriel 82156. Has anyone used these shocks on their car?

I don't know the dimensions but they are just regular tubular airplane type shocks.

Some years ago I bought a set from Fusick and they have held up fine. I don't remember the brand but they were just regular tube shocks(not gas filled)and not very expensive.... Tedd
