Depends on how much money you want to spend. I like my Tokico D-Specs

I have Tokico HP struts and shocks but my car is 2" + lowered and they are already going out after a year..

Just have to look up what's a good setup for lower setups..

Best bet it adjustable ones

I'm going coil overs next

The Tokicos on mine are holding up just fine but I only put a few thousand miles on it a year.

Yeah but I'm a nutcase about driving mine in the rain/snow. Pretty much a May-October car with a few trips out if it happens to be nice and no salt residue on the roads during the cold months.

I lucked out. Living in Fl, as long as there isn't a hurricane, I'm hooning a Mustang!

For handling go with either Koni Sports or Bilsteins.
