Im looking to buy new shocks for a dw8 4 bar z link car.Have not been around these cars in 9 years and wondering what shocks would be a good choice.

We run the small Bilsteins up front, I believe the lf is a 45/45 and the rf is a 30/60. We run the regular Bilstein shocks in the back with a 30/30 valving on both sides. My recommendation would be to not invest money in a lot of split valve stuff if you run the 4 bar & z link setup. Our experience is that the car doesn't seem to react any differently when we have tried shock changes only.
