1970 SS shocks

So what are you using?

My shocks are still working but are 36 years old and I am thinking time to replace while I am redoing the car to get it on the road again.

I am looking at Bilstein or Koni, but there are different series for them.

Since I am limited budget I am thinking Bilstein.

What are you using on your 1970 -1973 Camaro?

Re: 1970 SS shocks

Are you currently running a stock suspension? If it's already modified then agree with Koni and 20% off is a bonus, if you want a stock look then I have used after-market reproduction spiral shocks. Bought the last set from D&R Classics.

Re: 1970 SS shocks

I have the Edelbrock IAS Classics. I really like them but unfortunately they are no longer made. If I had to replace them I would get the Bilsteins. I have heard a lot of good things about them.

Re: 1970 SS shocks

I like the Gabriel HD gas shocks, about $25 or Monroe. These 2 companies are the largest suppliers of shocks. I have been very happy with these brands on the last 2 dozen cars I have restored. Daily driving and cruising they work well. Road course or racing you may want to go with another brand.

Re: 1970 SS shocks

I love Koni because they are perfectly fully adjustable with any lowering springs.
