I have a 1962 belair sedan 283 powerglide with 15" rally wheels and 225/60r15 tires. still has the original shocks on it what are most guys using for replacement? Its a bit of a job to remove wheels and rear tires now. looking at replacing all four shocks thanks.

I have used KYB Gas Adjust on both a 62 an a 63 Impala with excellent results. They also make an Excel G which is a lower pressure gas shock. The Gas Adjust gives better handling without making the ride to harsh. It is hard to beat RockAuto's prices on line.

I agree with Dave, have had KYB gas adjust on several of my cars.
