I have a set in my 71. I find the ride is just fine, others have said the rear is too stiff. I'm still running the original leafs from 1971. If you find the rear too stiff or harsh, swap them for a pair of GR-2s.

I, too. am using them on my Grandé with an extra leaf I love the "look" and the feel but keep in mind that I am running a 460-based engine.

Again, I like them and will probably go to them on my Mach I when I replace the 428CJ with the 545.

Anyone use Edelbrock or Koni shocks? They are way more expensive. But curious.

Just to chime in - 4 GR-2s came with the front/rear suspension rebuild kit that I just installed. I've only done some zero to sixty runs with no hard cornering, but I'm happy with what I feel so far.
