Re: Good replacement front shocks for 69 BB convertible
Well, the rest of the car is so untouched and original that I am a little hesitant to put an aftermarket sway bar on the car. Granted, that is something that can be easily switched back, but I think I will start with shocks and see if that is enough of an improvement. But the big sway bar is intriguing - a buddy of mine installed a big 1 1/8" bar on his Cutlass that we robbed off of a late 70's WS6 Trans Am, and it made an amazing difference.
Does anyone think I would want a stiffer front shock in consideration of all the weight on the front end of the car? Something like the KYB Gas-A-Just? Or would these result in a harsh ride? I am pretty satisfied with the overall ride - just would like it a little more firm in the corners.
Thanks for the replies! You sure can't beat the price of the Gabriels.
