The Powerglide and TH350 are the same length. Therefore, the 200-4R could be installed with a new/modified cross member and reuse the driveshaft (I would have the u-joints replaced).

I know you don't want KYB but I went with regular KYB on rear and KYB GR2 on front. Great ride (when I drive the C3). They will probably be the last set of shocks I ever buy for the C3.
