Re: Shocks question

You can look at some Koni, Bilstien, Eibach, KYB, Tokico, and Maximum Motorsorts now makes lowering springs to go with the, along with caster camber plates, bumpsteer kit and X2 balljoints to finsh the job. They is all good stuff.

Re: Shocks question

Sorry, I'm not sure what "tire hiring the bumper" means.

Re: Shocks question

I believe what you are talking about is the "pinion snub bushing" Go to Maximum Motorsports and they have one for you (they are cheap) and they have lowering springs of their own now and great shocks/struts. A place called "stangsuspension.com" is great too.

The shock holds the car in the air, the spring cushions the car as it hits a bump. If its bottoming out, then it is most likely the spring.
