gabriel shocks koni

Classic Shocks
I just finished replacing the front shocks, a couple air bags and brake shoes on the front of my classic. The shocks were still the factory originals, spray foam covered and all, Gabriel S2607B. Gabriel lists 85702 as a standard replacement. I was looking for something a little better. I believe the Koni replacement should have been 90-2434, but I got conflicting information about that model still being in production. I found Gabriel offered an adjustable gas shock SLX 89412 that seemed to be correct. In comparing the shocks these are the specifications I found.


The Gabriel is adjustable and the rebound is supposed to be the firm setting. I installed them at the extra firm setting. First 400 miles have been great, but those factory originals were pretty tired anyway. They did settle the front down and I think a pair on the back would really help too.
