    I installed last month a set of Bilsteins from Shockwarehouse;

    These do require that you be able to push out the rod on the bottom end of the stock front shocks and the bushing from the top of the rear shocks. You will need the appropriate bushings from Energy suspension (sorry, don't have a quick link available).

    My `63 Avanti really likes these.

      Here's the complete interchange list from the SDC home page. I used KYB's but you'll find a few here although the list is getting old. Nothing wrong with Ken's advice from above either.

            I think this post has the numbers and discussion necessary.

              Joe,
              Here are my Koni Part Numbers:
              Front 8040-1087
              Rear 8040-1088
              They work superbly AND are fully adjustable to suit your individual driving taste.
              Cheers, Bill
