Shocks & Struts

Ok Im looking to change my worn out shocks and struts here soon on my 94 GT and want some info on what to get. I'm staying stock (not lowering) cause I wont beable to get in my driveway with out draging. So Im looking for something a little better than stock. Thanks for any help on this you can give.

Re: Shocks & Struts

i believe bilstein sells a complete set for the front and rear, that would be what i'd go with.

Re: Shocks & Struts

It also depends on what you are looking to get from them...if youre not going to be doing much racing of any type, then you really don't need adjustables so that rules out Koni's and Tokico D-specs...

I would probably have to suggest the Bilstein's as Bbunt said for one of the better, if not the best, fixed systems out there...

Re: Shocks & Struts

the valving needs to be matched to the springs you have~ so buying certian shocks/struts wont do much without stiffer springs, just fyi.

But at the same time they also make a stock setups for most cars.
