Re: r1/r6 shock fits a slabby????
Actually, its pretty easy to tell them apart by looking at the point where the linkage attaches - and for that matter the linkage itself. The 750 linkage is smaller, has a smaller center bearing and does not have the cast in recesses like the 1100 link. As far as the arms go, the 1100 has a far more robust linkage area, is made up entirely of extrusions, and has a flat plate with 3 holes in it in the linkage area. The 750 arm is manufactured from castings and extrusions, and the linkage point is flat aluminum plate.
I'm sure if you do a google search you can find photos of both. If not, search ebay.
