Re: Shocks

I have the KYB Gas-A-Just's which handle well. If you want more comfort, than go with the GR-2's.

Re: Shocks

I have the KYB GR-2 gas shocks - they seem just fine for a driver. About $25 ea.

Re: Shocks

I used Koni's on both my 70's and loved them
Set to middle setting they provide nice ride with trimmed springs, solid bushings and lowered frame mounts.
I think I still have a set on the shop shelves for my next 2nd Gen.

QA1 12 position adjustable Stocker Stars. Been using them on the rears of our Camaros. Most my customers prefer to use the GMP kits for the coil over and ride height adjustment. Completely rebuild-able and revalvable if ever needed.

Re: Shocks need new ones today!

Great suggestions...I need to make a decision today...The KYB is way to stiff? BE COOL just launched a new one? But once again...I will make my decision based 2 out of 3 answers? Please
