    I will be replacing the front and rear shocks on my 71 soon 66E7CD9C-24FC-4698-A638-F083464456F3.jpeg and I’ve been reading good things about Bilstein shocks on this forum and was hoping to get a recommendation on what part number I should use

    Running 215/65/15 in the fronts and 255/65/15 in the rear.
    New front springs were replaced about 6 years ago with oem rating

    I know I need to replace both body mounts And F/R shocks

    I am trying to eliminate as much body noise as I can

    TIA

    I believe that Bilstien has collapsed all of their 2nd gen street shocks down to the “B6” line.
    Unless you go with a custom valving, which you don’t need, there’s only one part # per axel

    They have their B6 shocks and drag shocks. For the street you would get the B6 shocks.
    Part #24-029728 up front and Part #24-001564 in the rear.
