Hello to everyone. Hope you all had a good Canada Day long weekend. I'm looking for opinions on shock absorbers. My Monte has 1" lowering springs, and a set of KYB shocks that are probably about 23 years old. The car seems to ride very soft, with more movement than I'd like. I'm going to upgrade to the Jeep steering shaft, larger sway bars, and better shocks. I've looked online at shocks from different manufacturers, and the description of their capabilities seem to be very similiar, and in terms of price, they tend to vary from mild to crazy. I'm looking for something that will firm up the ride of the car, without jarring the fillings out of my teeth. Any and all ideas and opinions are welcome and appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I'm running Bilsteins' all around
& am very happy with the ride Jeff. Just not too sure what effect the 1" lowered suspension may have on them or not?
