I have a 69 351w XR7 with only 20,000 original miles. It still has the stock (?) air shocks in the rear. I hear some minor knocks and rattles from the rear end when cornering and I'm guessing its coming from the old worn shocks. Plus it still has the typical roll and lean when cornering.

What would you recommend for replacement shocks? I want a decent ride but I'd also like to reduce the roll and lean. Any and all suggestions appreciated.

I'd be interested in this too, i have a lot of body-roll, and see-sawing when braking...

KYB GR2's work fine on my Cat.

For body roll get an anti-roll bar. Other movement may indicate that the spring eye and/or shackle bushings are worn and need replacement.
