Shocks + struts

Planning on replacing my shocks and struts pretty soon. What's the best place to buy good budget shocks and struts from?

AM. Koni STR.T shocks and struts are pretty good for the money.

All of the sites listed will have what you need. If you are at or near stock height then KYB Gas A Justs, Koni Orange STR.T's or Tokico HP's will do just fine. They are a nice upgrade from stock. Forget the cheap Autoparts store Monroes etc.

I have Tokico HP's on my 03. Have had them on for ~30k miles with H&R Super Sports and they're holding up well, despite not being valved for those springs. I have Super Sports going in on my Mach 1 in the spring but will be adding Bilstein HD's instead as they are valved match the more aggressive travel/rate the springs demand.

If you are at stock height or dropped ~1.5" with a spring rate close to factory those shocks/struts will be a great match.
