I have a 79 355ci, and I was wondering what would be the best shock that I can put on. The shocks that I have on now are just not cutting it for me- They have too mcuh give and dive to much when I turn quickly or brake. So naturaly I want a stiffer set up- thanks for any help-

Koni and KYB make some pretty good ones. I've heard good things about the Edelbrock's, but I'm not sure if the price is worth it.

There is only so much shocks can do, then you need to change springs.
Many suspension tuners recomend Bilstein. They have models that are tuneable.
I think I am going to try them.
