Good Shocks?

Hello,
Can anyone recommend a set of good handling shocks? I have a 82 Malibu with big sway bars and heavy duty springs. I would like to firm up the ride with a good set of shocks! Pretty sure with gas charged, but what manufacturer. I would like to reduce nose dive and that comfortable "couch" type ride.
Thanks guys!

You might also look at Alstons line of VariShocks, Quickset 1 & 2's. I've got QA-1 coilovers on my rear and the adjustable varishocks in front, they're quality products.
