Gents, looking to replace the shocks on my '70 Super Bee. It's a stock car, 383, 4 speed, that I drive under normal conditions which means that I don't "horse" it around. What shocks do you recommend as replacements that will give me a good solid ride and where would I find them?
Summit drag shocks - they have 3 settings. Reasonable price. Summit Racing.
Bilsteins. PST.

That's what I used on 69 charger. No complaints at all. Much better ride.

This is what and where I did a few months ago and what a huge difference it made, of course my old shocks where 20 years old and shot.
PST has discounts for members, great to deal with.

I agree here. I ran KYBs for years thinking that they were a decent shock. When I finally pulled my head from my butt, I bought a set of Bilsteins from Firm Feel. They are not cheap but they are a nice improvement. They ride smooth on bumpy roads but firm up when the road gets twisty.
No complaints from my KYBs. I have tall sidewalls that soak up a lot of the small bumps. Bilsteins would be better for the 17 inch and up wheel with low profile tires. They are about $100 each from any vendor even with discounts.
PST usually has a sale on stuff a few time a year. I bought my Bilsteins and front suspension parts then ... also FBBO members get 10% off orders of $200 or more
