I am restoring a 1982 Suzuki SP500 and want to replace the rear shocks. I am not sure what kind to order. The eye to eye measurement that I made is 15 1/4 inches. I have found 15 inch and 15 3/4 inch. Will either of these fit? Any recommendations on where to buy these? I also would like to find a replacement gear shift, brake lever, and fork seals for it. Any idea on where I can find these?
Thanks!

Thanks for the replies. I have 15’s ordered already. I’ll let you know how they do when I get them installed.
