Shocks

Recommended Posts

Shocks, Rear, Monroe Load leveling - '63 to '66 car & Avanti '

Has anyone tried these from Avantibiz? I put on the KYB shocks that someone listed as the part number and in not very satisfied with them. I also had to nake modifications for the KYB.

Interesting comments. When I rebuilt the front suspension on my 83 I added KYB shocks to all four corners. I did need to widen the bottom pin on the front shocks but overall I'm very happy with the ride quality and handling of the old girl. You'll generally need to make minor changes to the shocks unless you order directly from an Avanti supplier and you may even need to modify them.

The ones you show sure look like overkill to me unless you are towing something.

I still firmly believe the two best options are Koni and Bilstein for any Studebaker or Avanti. Nothing comes remotely close IMHO.

Never had an experience with Bilstein, but have an original Koni shock set on my car.  That along with the larger sway bars makes it handle like it's on rails.  A totally different ride from stock.
