Question shocks for my '65 c10 ?

I am curious as to what shocks are available for my '65 c10 stepside?

I've been up to the parts stores asking around - but thought I'd ask some of you folks about what you have used.

thx.

I dig KYB shocks.

They have the Gas-A-Just ones which are the heavy duty stiffr ones and the GR-2's which are lighter and ride better. I always prefer the GR-2's myself for my trucks.

Summit sells both, even though they only really advertise the more expensive Gas-A-Just ones. I usually find the KYB GR-2 part numbers online then order them through Summit. They have always had them in stock and at the cheapest prices.

I bought some Gabriel from Auto Zone for my 65, I bought the top of the line for the front and rear from them and I spent about $150 total. My truck has a completely different ride now. I am very happy with it. I can get you part numbers if you need.

Here are the front shocks:
GABRIEL_MAX_CONTROL
MONOTUBE SHOCK 77355 LLT $49.99

Here are the rear:
GABRIEL_ULTRA G63306 LLT $28.99

Again, I got these from Auto Zone. The fronts were in stock at one store and the rears are just about everywhere.

Also, my truck is not lowered but I do have a 454 up front and I love these shocks. My old shocks were completely worn out, I could compress them easily by hand and they would not expand on their own.
