Pretty sure he is talking about ignition. Not suspension. Unless MSD started making suspension lol

You can rebuild your originals for $30 if the plastic housings are in good shape. What usually goes bad is the boot and the spring, not the actual electronic portion of the COP itself.

If you do buy all new, get them from Rockauto and use the discount code posted on these forums or just google it. They're $40 each at Rockauto.

And yes, get Motorcrafts or don't even bother. Every single aftermarket COP has proven to be no better than OEM as far as actual spark and the durability isn't even close.

Funny thread

Sad how MSD went down the drain.
Back in the 70's and 80's their ignition boxes were the ones to have.
Built like tanks and really worked.

That being sad, only OEM and try the boots first.
Also do NOT, I repeat DO NOT slather on dielectric grease.
It does NOT conduct electricity and will cause you problems.
An ultra thin coating on the inside of the boot is all you need. Do not put it on the metal spring or end of the spark plug.
Here is a good video on this. It's for standard plug/wire sets but the principles are the same.
