    Hi all. I'm going to install new shocks on the old TBird and would like your input on options. I'd like "extra heavy duty" shocks if I can find them. Also, in the past I've seen some posts indicating that some brands of front shocks don't have a long enough rod on them and that it may be necessary to weld an extension on in order for it to work on our cars. What's up with that?

    Here are the options I'm looking at, what do you guys recommend?

    KYB 344398 Excel-G Gas Shocks. These are available on Amazon but it's unclear whether they are for the front or rear

    Cure-Ride shocks from Mac's, PN 66-36740-1. Also unclear if these are for front or rear

  2. Look for Bilstein or Koni shocks. They make the car to feel like driving a newer Mercedes. Thats all I go for on my classic cars and my 68 T-Bird
