need new shocks

Need new shocks for my 02 v6. What are the best value ones available? Not looking to spend much. Im liking the toxico hp's from american muscle for 60 a piece. Anything else I need to go along with it? Anyone have install instructions? Thanks

I myself like the cheap Gabriel's they last about as long as others do and cost less.

Well I was looking at autozone and they said those were 60 so I figured I may as well go with something nicer for the same price.

You got nice ones. That'll be a nice difference. I just got the KYB shock/struts you see everywhere. Post how you like 'em.

Re: need new shocks

if you want to do springs/shocks to give the ride a better handling feel then you can look into mach 1 spec tokicos, possibly 03/04 cobra bilstiens not sure how they fit with the CC plates~ and ford C springs or H&R race springs. (cc plates needed if you drop much at all though so another 180 bucks)
