Last I checked, which was several years ago, the Autozone line was manufactured by Monroe. This may have changed, but that's how it was. The part numbers jived with Monroes too.

Dont buy the Gabriels if your car is lowered. Its like not having shocks at all. Not to bad on a stock spring stang. If your lowered go with the kyb.

Yeah if you get the gabs all of your turns will make you sick. Stick to the kybs they also have quad shocks to match

Bilsteins or bust. Yeah pricey, they have a lifetime warranty so if you ever have an issue you just pull the bad unit, go back to Autozone and walk out the door with a new one.

Foxbody shocks all the way around for a 93 5.0 all day long.. Can't go wrong. More travel and work amazing from factory height all the way to a 2 inch drop. They're a direct bolt up and they'll never blow out on you. (I love how my 96GT squats and holds its position) nice factory ride too. not rough at all.

Ebay sets

I just did fronts and backs.
I ordered mine off ebay. The full set for less than Autozone front sets only..
to the door.

Plan for the swap, order by Tuesday and you will have them by the weekend anyway.
