Do you Drag Race, Auto-x, A little of both, or is it just a daily driver? Do you want something stiff or something a little softer than stock? There are a lot of choices out there (a search will review a lot of them), so it's kinda up to how you want it to drive.
I happen to have gone through all the above [img]graemlins/.gif[/img]
On my Impala I went from the Stock De-Carbon Shocks to the Newer Edelbrock IAS shocks, the Edelbrocks were the newer series with the improved metering piston & seals and were a definate improvement over the DeCarbon. I had those on with the Stock Springs & Suspension. I now Have the HAL QA1 on the Impala with the Complete Hotchkis Setup, 12 way adjustable and very good shock but heavy on the $$.
I had the Bilstens on the 9c1 and have gone to the Monroe SS Shocks with my original SS Springs and like them very much. Dollar for Dollar the Monroe Severe Service shock is hard to beat on a Spirited Daily Driver. IMO
KYBs on the Wagon have HAD IT. Leaking and may as well be riding on the springs only. Monroe SS shocks will be going on, if I decide to keep her.
