Hello everyone, wanted to get a bit of feedback/opinions on the subject. I currently replaced the rear shocks for my 67 cougar with the help of my father in law with Air Shocks.
In law stated it's alright for what I want to do(more details on this below), he has 40 years of mechanic experience working on classics. Though I've had a FB group tell me that they may not be a good choice. I've also gone through various forums that kind of swing back and forth between yay and nay. Much like the one linked below. Which I believe I located here. From 07? And it appears a very experienced member at the time (Hawkrod) stated they would be fine provided the vehicle isn't abused.

Not racing, not stripping, avoiding daily driving (have work vehicle) Not raising it above 1inch (needed it for tire scuffing clearance) Current PSI is 40-45
Mainly taking it to conventions, have clean roads in areas, don't plan on pulling any loads, maaaybe increase PSI a bit if heavier set folks ride with but otherwise keeping it low set and would be reset after said people out vehicle.
