Houdaille shocks were for Model A Ford and later into the V8 era, though they were more substantial and hydraulic. This Model T had friction shocks that were the most popular type up until the 1920's. One popular maker was Hartford in England - such friction shocks can still be bought.

Sorry Herb, "nope" on both counts. Houdaille shocks were used on the 1928-31 Model As, they were a hydraulic unit. Unless Houdaille made this kind of friction shock a type often seen on big cars in the oughts into the 'teens.

Nice to see a photo of a '12 that has fore-doors.

Is it my glasses or is something going on with the back wheel?

For what it's worth, we put reproduction Truffaut-Hartford shocks on our K and it makes a noticeable difference.
