    What is a good High Performance shock for a Magnum?

    I need to replace my shocks -- and might need to replace my springs. Last time I bought shocks for a Magnum was in the late 70s and Monroe Gas-a-matic was the way to go then.

    What's the one to go to now days?

    Koni, Bilstein, Edelbrock...

    The key to the fronts is you'll have to spec out a GM A-body shock in the front.
    Bilstein could be ordered from Hotchkis or Firm Feel.

      Years ago, I replaced the front shocks of a '79 Newport R-body with a pair of Koni adjustable shocks, and they were nothing short of amazing! :angel:
      However, I do not remember the part number, and do not know if they are still made. I used Monroe air shocks in the rear, as I towed a boat trailer, and the rear springs, (even though new HD police units-5 leaf), were totally inadequate!

      Several posts have been made about this over the years, and CudaZappa MAY still have the part numbers, as I posted them here a while ago!
