New shocks for a 75 TS

I'm looking for a new set of shocks for my 75, the old ones being original Boges. The height and springs are standard and I intend to keep it that way. I'd like to have firm, but not kidney-shattering ride.

What are the alternatives? Konis, Bilsteins, OSRAVs or...? I know basically nothing of the characteristics of these dampers, so any input is appreciated.

Cheers from Finland,

Go for Bilstains (Sport are the one think) as long as your car is standard otherwise. OSRAV might be an alternative if you can get a hold of them, they are adjustable

Re: New shocks for a 75 TS

I would go for Spax adjustables on a car with original "springs" assuming they are available for your 75 TS.

They are very easily adjusted (on the side for my 1983 Alfetta GTV for example) and you generally can set them to exactly suit your driving style . ie you can go from "sport" to "Comfort" with these shocks

On my Alfetta GTV it used to take less than 10 minutes to make a Shock adjustment using a screw driver.
