I need new shocks.

My 02 GT has 190000 miles on it and is still using the factory shocks (which are completely blown and rotted through). I replaced the quad shocks with KYB GasAJust (got both for 40 on CL) and now I need the rear shocks. I'm looking at either Monroe SensaTrac for 31.99 with a lifetime warranty or some more KYB Gas A Just shocks for 50 each not sure on the warranty. My car is my daily driver and my baby. It doesn't go to the track or do autox. I just want some good shocks that will give me a quiet and nice ride. Any input on the two I mentioned will be appreciated.

Socks? Lol. I have the Monroes on my Bullitt, from the previous owner. For daily driving, I don't have any problem with them at all. They have a very nice ride. With that being said, I do autocross my car and it has different springs than a GT. They aren't a very good match for the springs on my car. They are probably a better match for for the stock GT springs. Although I have no experience with KYB on Mustangs, I have been using them for years. They are a good "middle of the road" shock. Decent ride, decent performance. My choice for my car? I have a Tokico suspension kit sitting in my garage... Waiting

I think I will probably just go with the Sensa Tracs. Id love some bilstein shocks but for 31.99 I think the sensa tracs will be just fine.

Keep them the same. Then you have same dampening properties all around. I put Tokico on my car and KyB Monomax on the truck.
