I'm looking for NOS De Carbon shocks, front and rear. I know that I'm looking for something that can't be found anymore so I offer in exchange NOS Zenith 28IF. So, we can exchange or I can pay, it doesn't matter. Thank you

Not cheap - but NOS, and open to offers. Worth cross-referencing them.

There's another pair of fronts on French eBay, but for early models - I imagine the part number must be an early version of 7700515542 (as opposed to 7700588894 - the number given in the PR900 for GTLs). It might be worth contacting the seller, as he has a lot of interesting parts, and he might be able to find some later front (and perhaps rear) shocks for you.

Do they have to be De Carbons? I've found Monroe gas shocks to be good.

Or you could try Record Maxigas:

Does anybody knows do these fit my 1990 GTL? Are they gas pressured? Is it better to buy these NOS or new absorbers? Do absorbers and rubber parts on absorbers lose performance over the years?

Mario, try my Spax shocks sometime. Being able to adjust/balance front and rear can transform an already "perfect" car !

Definitly gas as they have retaining wire clip needed to successfully fit to rear without struggling
In theory all R4 rear shocks fit all models regardlessof model type
