Ben if the price is right I will probally be interested in a set that was made for the Boxey style 9c1 Caprices.
Still running the original decarbons on the Impala ss from 3-95.

Bilstein Shocks
This is the last place that I bought my Bilsteins 4 years ago for my 9c1.

I believe our National club ISSCA.gif .
Has a deal with this wholesale company in California.

Around the summer of 97,
I blew out one of the orange factory decarbon shocks ignore.gif at 25,000 miles.

Oil spot on the garage floor gave it away.

Chevy dealer charged GM around $130.00 for this one shock moon.gif.

Which was installed for free under the new car factory warranty.

Will these work with my Hotchkis springs...being that the car is lowered? Would they be compressed, and not be right? huh.gif

That's great and I am glad there is some interest. I will call www.shox.com's 1-800 number and try to set something up for the GP.

As far as the pictures John, I hope to have something around May or June! bowdown.gif lildevil.gif cool.gif The chevelle just got a new clutch put in it peelout.gif...again. Too long of a story to tell but basically I won the battle of a long disagreement with my dad about clutch adjustment banghead.gif ...hence the new clutch! tongue.gif moon.gif

Will let everyone know what I find out from shox.com's people for helping us out with a GP.

If there is any more interest please add to the thread.

My understanding w. Bilsteins are that if your car is dropped then the Sport package is the way to go....if it as factory suspension then go w. HD....


here is a link that kinda explains the difference

Benny,

Put me in on the Bilsteins. I have to keep my VSP in tip top shape. I cant be taken turns doing 95 MPH. with old worn out shocks.

Too bad, I just purchased mine or else I would have gotten in on this deal.

FYI: I purchased mine from eshocks.com - they offered free shipping. Total was about $269 delivered anywhere in the 48 states. (give or take a dollar or two - I forget what the exact amount was but including shipping it was the cheapest place I could find. biggrin.gif )

Ok, here is a great deal from Mark at SHOX.com.

They have the Sport and HD Bilteins to fit our B-bodies for the following:

$249.80/set of 4 + shipping of $20 = $269.80/set of four

This breaks down, including shipping, to: $67.45/each. I think this is a decent deal.

What are everyone else's thoughts? blink.gif

So far I have the following people interested:

Joel - 1 pr front
John W - 1 set boxy
Rob K - 1 set
BradsDCM - 1 set
Adam S. - 1 set (penciled in)
Kenny B - 1 set
Myself - 1 set

ANY ADDITIONS/DELETIONS, PLEASE ADD TO THE THREAD! Thanks!
