      IIRC, Bill was in the business for many years, including being a Koni dealer and installed them on several Studes personally.

            Brad probably meant "1970-81" Camaro & Firebird. That is the second generation of those cars.

                Brad just ordered 4 shocks for my Avanti............B4 they arrive would you please be specific as to what mods have to be effectuated to allow me to install same?
                many thanks in advance

                  Too good to be true..............received e-mail that Bilsteins are back ordered in the US:-( Can I go with KYB as an alternative?

                    Bob does the '83 have the save "A" frame as the Studes?...........I was told there is a problem with non-stock front shocks being too long, which results in cracking, then splitting of the "A" frames.

                      AFAIK, looks like a Lark frame to me. Just check any shocks you have against the old ones for length both extended and un-extended. Most shock companies should have that data on their websites as an initial data point.

                      No problem on mine but not a lot of miles.
