shock setup

Currently I'm running H&R ss springs on my OEM shocks. I installed them last January and the stang rides beautifully, considering I'm running OEM shocks. Any recommendations on shocks. Just wondering if anyone out there is running h&r springs and what after market shocks they went with. I can't choose.

I have UPR coilover set up on mine with bilstien struts and shocks. The ride quality is still sporty and firm. I have used many different shocks and struts from mustangs to BMW's bilstien and Koni are the best. Hope that helps.

I was considering either one of those. I was leaning more towards the Koni blues cause they're a bit cheaper

I have H&R race springs and the Tokico shocks and struts that came on the Bullitt and I'm real happy with the ride. I'm looking into the D-Spec shocks and struts from Tokico when I need to replace my stockers.

Tokico Illumina are great adjustable shocks also

Re: shock setup

Is the car used for any track duty? That will also dictate the setup.

I run Koni Sport Yellow Adj. w/ H&R Race Springs, but that setup is for heavy track & autox duty. If the car is just for DD/street use, there really is no need for adjustable dampers. In that case, I'd go with a Koni, Billstein, or Tokico fixed damper.
