shocks
« on: July 13, 2012, 12:55:54 AM »
Hello
I am going to have to change my front springs in my 69 Z and wondered if I should change the shocks. Car has mr gasket super drag shocks on the front and monro matics on the back.  Seen kyb and blistens that people liked, along with edelbrocks but jegs doesnt seem to have edlebrocks.
I wont do anything other than a little spirited driving, no racing.  Only person who drove my car was the original owner so the shocks on it have been there a while. I havent drove it enough to know if what I have are any good either

Thanks
1969 Z28, Burgandy, numbers matching, 12,900 miles
1967 Plymouth GTX Hemi, 4 speed, dana
1961 Chrysler 300G convertible

It looks like Edelbrock got out of the shock business about 1 year ago: http://www.qa1.net/news/2011/08/23/qa1-acquires-edelbrock%E2%80%99s-suspension-line/

I sent QA1 an email to see if they are going to continue the Edelbrock Classic IAS line of shocks.

It sounds like the Edelbrock Classics will not be revived.  I have Edelbrock Classics but not the QA1 shocks.

All of the shocks are fully rebuildable, with the TN shocks being user revalveable, as well.  They are all Made in the USA right here in Lakeville, MN.
You can leave my name, but it might be best to leave either Dave Goldie or Dave Kass’ name (our resident street shock experts.)

Hard to beat Koni adjustables.
