1967 Camaro shocks

Anyone have information on shocks as far as ride comfort to price? Looking at them online and there is a big price difference. Are the more expensive ones really worth the extra cost as far as ride?

The Old Adage is True! You get what you pay for. If you buy Cheap Shocks, they don't last and ride like crap. Higher Priced Shocks ride better, have adjustments and in many cases are Guaranteed for Life!

Re: 1967 Camaro shocks

I bought some KYB shocks from Summit for under $200, I think I drove around the block 4 or 5 times and gave them to a friend that's flipping a 68 Firebird.

I ended up with ridetech, but you don't have to spend that much, I'd budget at least $400 minimum if you want to keep and enjoy your car for awhile, that budget might get you some bilstein shocks.

You can usually find Bilstein gas shocks for a reasonable price online and the ride is decent imho.

Re: 1967 Camaro shocks

I went through this a while ago and settled on Koni Classics. I am really happy with them, the ride quality of the Koni's compared to the Gas-a-justs that were on there was unbelievable. I'm pretty sure they were about $90 each.
