    Installed Bilstiens on my '72. I think they give a very good ride.

      QA1 on mine, so far so good. But no real evidence as car is not running yet. Opinion based on putting them on my Cuda so I put them on Demon as well. They rock on the Cuda.

        Choosing shocks would depend on what your plans are with the car.
        Strip, Street/Strip, Canyons, Car Show Cruiser, Grocery Getter ?

            ive heard some good things about the QA1s, I’m in Oz, you wouldn’t mind giving me the part number you used so I can see if I can get them from a shop in Oz?

            When I get to shop tonight I will grab numbers for you. QA1 also has a super good printed catalogue you can request for free off website. Has a lot of good info in it!

              The Viking doubles are also another good choice, I would not be scared to utilize either or. May come down to availability for you?

              Let me know if they give you static over not being able to send a catalog to you and I will take pix of the pages you are interested in and send them to you.

              KYB's......Paint them black. Slap them on. In my oppion, best bang for the buck shock out there.
              Monroe makes a nice shock to, for even less money. These 2 shocks work for me, without breaking the bank.

                For primary street use I would go with the Bilsteins. If you plan on street/strip and want a shock that will grow with you as you add more performance parts to your vehicle than I would suggest the double adjustables from Viking. We offer both Bilstein and Viking with shipping to Australia. Also we offer a members discount as well.

                Here is a link to our shock offerings for your Demon:

                PST | Bilstein Shocks | Viking Shocks | KYB Shocks | Coil Shocks

                Thanks

                  Thanks James, ended up going with the Bilsteins as will only be going to the strip on the rare occasion, so couldn't justify the extra for the Vikings, have placed my order #6093, I've put my member details in the comments etc
                  Thanks again, really appreciate it
                  Mike
