    Doesn't a '79 still have a Studebaker Chassis?

    Just ordinary '63 & up Studebaker, Lark, Hawk and Avanti Gabriel H.D. Gas Shocks should be fine.

      Here are a few notes to look at
      http://www.studebaker-info.org/rjtec...p2g.html#shock

      If you want a truly impressive ride, try the performance shocks ( larger diameter ). One precaution tho, Koni's are definitely a challenge to install due to their diameter, but will fit. Once you have them ( or others installed ) you won't look back..

        Koni, Koni, Koni,
        Wait for Dave L to get his order going.
        I have them for every Stude I own as they are simply the best for ride quality, handling and outright performance. That's why they cost more than $20.00 Monroes or no names.

        PS: And yes Rich a '79 is Studebaker

            Any 2nd gen Camaro shocks will work with a little modding to the top (rear) and bottom (front) mounts. I'd not recommend waiting for anyone to produce Stude-specific parts.

              Use Blisteins fora 2nd generation Camaro (71-80) and never look back as you pass the guy with the Konis.
