front shocks for 1961 LeSabre

Recommended Posts

The front of my car is pretty bouncy. I replaced the front shocks with some cheap Pep Boys shocks and it road exactly the same. Im wondering if there are better shocks for this car or perhaps my springs could be bad? Anyone have suggestions? Thanks

Shocks control the rebound, not springs.  Buy better shocks.

Can you better describe what is considered " bouncy"?  Did you previously replace the rear shock absorbers?

Rockauto carries the AC/Delco gas charged shocks for your car.
