    Some time ago, I purchased a set of Gabriel Ultra Shocks for my '72 GS. Car rides like a old International truck my dad owned back in the 50's & 60's, as if the shocks have the piston rods welded to the casing.

    Now I am researching two lines of ACDelco shocks
    1) professional premium gas shocks (88945170 & 169)
    2) advantage conventional gas shocks (88946024 & 025)
    Not interested in kyb.

    Anyone have experience with either shock and can recommend one or the other?

    No interest in Bilstein? I just put a set on the back of my ‘72 & they seem pretty nice.

    Can get all four from Summit for around $300.

    I just installed a set of AC Delco gas shocks from Rock Auto. They were around $100 for the set. Painted them GM shock gray. Ride great imo.
