    New Rear shocks

    I have a 97 Camaro that has been LS swapped, I take it out on runs about once a month or so. I have gone though two sets of rear shocks in the past year I am looking for somthing that is going to take the abuse I put the car though. Any suggestions on what shocks I shoud go with or any else that might help out my rear suspension?

    By abuse what do you mean? AutoX, track, daily, street?

    Bilsteins for both street and strip with budget in mined.

    QA1 shocks for more $$ but give you options in tuning for street/strip and auto X.

    Viking Coil overs for all out drag.

    Stock rear shocks are still on duty in our car. They'll lay down a 60' in the high 1.6 second range just about every pass.

    I would think something else is severely wrong if you're going through shocks like my grandma used to go through a pack of cigarettes.

    I personally went with Koni 4/4's and Strano lower springs.
