Post by reid on Sat Jan 16, 2016 1:11 pm

Hey all, the power train re-build on my 74 road runner is underway. It's been decades since I've been able to get back into cars so out of the loop on many things. Just wondering what are the most popular shocks mopar peeps are using these days. Looking for stock type set-up shocks to replace the worn out air shocks that are now on the car. Appreciate all ideas and suggestions, thanks in advance.

If going stock get the heavy duty ones.

Bilstein is the way to go if you want a real good shock .everyone that uses them love the results I have the 90 /10s on the front of my car and love them. blisteins are the upper end shock and are not cheap . But a regular heavy duty shock will work ok .

A lot has to do with what kind of ride you want out of the car and what your plans are for it. Street/ Track ?

Hey Dan, just looking for good general, heavy duty shocks. Plan on making a few passes at the local strip, for the true times and speeds, but mostly just cruising around looking for fun.

Are your air shocks still be utilized, because these may be helping with your ride height as well ?

Could be that your springs are shot and need to be rebuilt, if this the case get an extra ply or two or thicker ply.

I've only seen them available on line here in Canada. I don't know of any supplier that you can just walk in off of the street and buy these. Hopefully someone here knows of a place.
