Kim, and Tigers,
A number of years ago I felt that my '65 original Armstrong shocks were
not "in character" for the car. I removed (and kept) them and purchased
a set of 2 front and 2 rear Koni adjustable shocks from Sunbeam
Specialties. Rick and CAT and made a combined order, and both were
selling them. These were especially made for the Tiger, and were
adjustable (as well as Orange!)
I found that they performed well, as did the similar Konis I had on my
RED TOI "Sebring", and my 356 Porsche.
They are still available, along with Spax, at Sunbeam Specialties (under
Catalog / Shock Absorbers) for $185 each.
If you intend Autocross, or race competition, I am sure those
enthusiasts have their own recommendations, but if you drive it on the
street, you might temper the suggestions.
