Steer clear of the Edelbrock IAS Shocks.
The original equipment is better IMHO

I have some Rancho RS 5000 shocks and they are smoother on-road and
way better off-road than what was on it. (midas on front, motomaster
on back)  But, if you want even smoother on-road shocks, the Rancho
RS 9000 are clicker adjustable from hard to softer. Of course if
anyone else has a better suggestion, I'm glad to here it.

Thanks Dale,

The RS9000 is a tempting idea. Kind of expensive so, with all due respect,
does any one else have any input (good or bad) on these?

Thanks again.
