Rear Shock options, Tokico, Cobra IRS.

So I lowered my car and am researching rear shocks.

Here is what I found.

First, The COBRA IRS shocks are a good option, and you can find replacements from Tokico now.
Tokico HE3751 are the listing I found for the Cobra IRS.

Koni
8041 1270Sport Is their answer for the IRS Cobra. $150 a piece approx.


For the Thunderbird applications:

Monroes, you can get the shocks for the 89-91 cars and they will have a shorter compressed length. Useful for lowered cars.
#5950 is the Sensatrac unit.
Otherwise, the stock height ones are #5965.
Pep Boys, Checker

Gabriel
69820 Is the Ultra for 98-91 cars, expected to be shorter compressed length. It has a high gas pressure. One of the best low priced shocks around.

Tokico Blue for the Bird
HE3690
I think these are the best shock you can get for less than $70 each. This shock is good for lowered cars also.

Koni
8041 1202Sport are adjustable and the best shock for you tweekers. At about $135 each they should be. This may be a good shock for lowered cars too.



I have never heard good things about KYB GR2 so I will not visit those parts.

Go Bilstein or go home.

You haven't done your research here very well. There's a sticky on the Bilsteins. lol

But, hey, if you wanna try something different or are on a limited budget at least you've found some other choices.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...

Gee, I didn't realize that your need or opinion was the only one that mattered.

When you can hook me up with a Bilstein Front Shock I might go that route.
My first TBird had Bilsteins. They were great. But alas, not everything is as it was.

And yes, this was a catch all post. I basically listed everything BUT specific Bilstein information. It was for anyone who lowered their car.
Pennyless teenagers and rich *****es like yourself can now find part numbers for everything in the market I could find as of today.

BTW, I've been on this board 10 years+. Maybe you should stop pointing out the obvious and start being constructive. Maybe you would have noticed that with the sticky post you so astutely pointed to and MY post you basically have all the rear shocks available worth having.

I know all this information, I didn't realize you were going to be the only one to read my post or I would have just been redundant and said something like Cobra Bilsteins.

Sorry Richard, no offense intended. My post was ment to be tongue-in-cheek. I should have made my reply more generic, perhaps something like "But, hey, if someone wants to try something different or they are on a limited budget at least you've found some other choices that they may consider."

I understand how you interpreted my reply as a personal attack and once again, I apologize.

No, you don't need my opinion and it's certainly not the only one that matters. But, seeing how this is a public forum and the title of your thread is "Rear Shock options, ..." I suggested the only option that you didn't mention.

As far as "stop pointing out the obvious and start being constructive." I'd like to thank you for taking the time to research the other options out there and posting them here for those who would like to know what else is available.

I doubt I was - or will be - the only one to read this thread. I just happened to be the first to reply to it.

Regards,
-Ron

My car isn't lowered but I've been quite pleased with the SensaTracs. At $35 a piece, how can you go wrong?

Truthfully i didnt see Trunk as attacking you at all.

On that note I do agree with Trunk on this one Bilstein is the way to go. From what i understand though is that they have stopped making them for our cars... I could be VERY wrong but this is what i thought i had heard.

I do though have an extra Pair sitting in the garage, i was going to keep them for a back up pair but i may let them go.

This if referring to the set that works in the front and rear.

I appreciate that I could have clearly stated that the info was in addition to the Sticky Bilstein thread, I will also tell you that this information is not consolidated anywhere else.
So stating that I hadn't done my research well is a direct conflict since it should be apparent in the data included in my post.
Likewise, personal attack or not, the post should stand alone as good information, that is what I take as a criticism.

Not every suspension setup is going to be "best" with a full set of Bilsteins.
In FACT, many early users of Bilsteins on Birds had custom compression and rebound.

No one shock can do it all. Why would you need adjustable Koni shocks if Bilsteins are so awesome?

Basing your whole decision on what you heard is fine, but I've had four of these cars and each one had a different suspension. I'd like to think that if you can now concentrate on what you want to acheive with your suspension can be improved by knowledge.

As an example, Sensa-Tracs are mentioned by someone above. I can tell you that rear Sensa tracs are a very good street improvement with stock SC springs. But with lowered Eibach springs, probably not.

So, I offered a summary of info for anyone to do with as they please because no one solution exists for every need.

I'm pretty happy with the Tokico Blues I put on the '92 when I lowered it about 1-1/2 inches.

Say those Gabriel Sensatracks are good? How are the fronts I wonder?

I have a set of springsfor the '95 I will use that will lower it about the same amount, I am looking at shocks for it, especially fronts while I am in there, the rears are so easy to do anytime. Springs are Sport Springs, 1 coil short in front, 5/8 coil short in back.

A fine pair ... ... and whatever you do, Have a Safe Trip!

For the first round I have a V6 car.
Rear coil is cut 1 and 1/2 coils from the top. I left the soft coils to keep the ride quality good. Really dropped the car BTW.
I got the Gabriel shocks for '89-91. Compressed length is right at 12" which will prevent bottoming out on the shock.
It is a gas charged shock and it works real well.
The rearend with the stock shocks was bouncy some and of course bottoming out was harsh.
The Gabriels are very nice ride and man the things tightened up the rearend in the turns. Feels very snug on the freeway.
For comparison the fronts are stock shocks with 2 coils cut off the bottom soft end to get rid of floatiness.
The fronts may need something better like the Gabriels or Sensatracs to be perfectly balanced. The front floats a little on the freeway compared to the rear now.

$25 each at Autozone, lifetime warranty.

I got a full tokico kit (shocks and springs, all 4 corners) for $375 shipped from Shox.com.

Sure you need to buy strut mounts for the front, but that's no biggie...

You could sell the lowering springs that come with the kit.... and the front shocks.

For the price of those tokico illumina 2's get konis.

I like the tokico springs more than the shocks.

Until they go soft prematurely, and your car feels like a 65 instead of a 95. Took mine out after about 40,000 miles, and put Konis in ...

I have a '96 Thunderbird with sport springs cut 1", Would yall suggest the cobra or thunderbird rear tokico blue shocks? I will still be running the sport shocks up front.

Or should I just do SensaTracs or KYB GR-2?

Thanks

It's up to you and what you can afford. Personally, I have and like the Cobra Bilsteins in the back with the sport shocks up front.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...

alright, so it finally come to that day, that day when i make a mental judgement and decided that after over 150,000 miles its definitely about time to replace my springs and shocks
in addition to finally gettin a 1" to 1.5" drop

after the research that i've done and the budget that i have, i've come to the conclusion that my ideal combo is going to be:

Eibach lowering springs
tokico blues (along with the purchase of shock mounts)
and all new bushings

this is basically the best budget-performance option i can think of right now
if anyones got any better ideas
LET EM' FLOW!!!!!!!!

I need that knowledge and this is the best place to come

The Cougar is my shepherd;
I shall not want.
It maketh me burnout on black pavements;
It leadeth me beside busy freeways;
It restoreth my soul;
It leads me in the path of quickness for its names sake.
Yea, though I walk through the valley of rice, I shall fear no turbo, for Torque art with me;
Thy rod and thy piston they comfort me.
Thou preparest a Track for me
in the presence of my enemies;
Thou hast anointed my bearings with oil;
My car overpowers.
Surely traction and victory shall follow me,
All the days of my life,
And I shall dwell in the house of the V8, Forever.
Amen

Just wondering, why do you want the Eibach springs and Tokico shocks when you can get the whole package through Tokico (shocks and springs). If you're really on a budget you can go to suspensionmax.com and get the springtech 1.5" drop springs and KYB GR-2's for about $325 (I'm not sure about shipping) http://shop.suspensionmax.com/Shop/C...orLanding/true . IIRC Eibachs are like $250, and then the Tokicos are like another $250. The full Tokico set is around $420, and that way you know they are designed to work together, though I doubt you'll have a problem with the eibachs and the blues.

Good to know, because to get the stuff from suspensionmax.com after shipping would be just over $400, and I'd rather have the full Tokico kit.

yeah, ive just heard really good things about Eibach, but the same time im not tryin to pay extra for a name.

im keeping the budget low because im not planning on havin my cougar for much more than a year. it was my first car and ive had it for 6 years, ive seen its ups and downs and i get pulled over way too much, so eventually ill be moving on to something else
but for the time being i want a decent upgrade

i actually saw that tokico kit and am startin to lean towrds that, make alot more sense givin my situation

It took suspensionmax right around a month to get me the tokicos. Just beware of that, they have to have tokico ship them from kentucky out to their location in california, then they will send them your way. I would stick with shox.com.

KYB GR-2s are junk. Overall quality is all over the chart with them.
I would stay away from them at all costs.
