are you sticking with standard coil springs and stock front suspension set up? making any other changes? viking makes a very nice double adjustable shock & coil over set up that replaces springs and shocks and gives you all kinds of adjust-ability in ride height and quality. there are several other companies out there that make similar set up's. i'm just partial to the viking stuff.

all depends on what you want out of the car and what you're doing over all.

i am sticking with the standard coil springs and stock front suspension. at this point, its a show car...so it will be driven on a limited basis, but i do drive it as much as possible. i have spared no expense with this project so i want it to be the best it can be. i will look into viking...thanks for the info

I used KYB. Not too much money, and work well. I don't drive my car like its on rails.

when you go adjustable you get the best of both worlds. i can click the knobs a couple times and yank the front wheels or turn them back and drive like a modern car

Don
been running them for over 20 years without a problem :wink2:
a lot of things are not recommended , but used.
such as D.O.T. slicks in the rain .
you just have to know what the limitations are:smile2:

I have found the KYB gas shocks to be a little harsh. Off he shelf Monroe’s or Gabriela work pretty good
