Holy molie...

I removed the "ORIGINAL 27 year old shocks" & installed the new Bilstein Sport shocks last night....WOW! What a huge difference. Unbelieveable! The car corners like a new car.

I am nearly 100% that the shocks are original as they were stamped 80811-'79 DELCO on the bottom. If you would have seen these things you would've flipped. No travel pressure or response from these flacid, rusty ol' terds. The new Sports are exceptional & I am quite happy with the $249.99 spent.

Hey AP,

Those are great shocks. Glad to hear of the improvement!

Save the wave, and remember ".... more cowbell, baby!!!..."
