Sorry to be unclear.
You can't get any of the original shocks.
IMHO, the ranking is: (I've own/owned these shocks on mn12s) (Exc. Bilsteins, they're on order, see S4gunns thread)
Koni No longer available
Bilstein No longer available; mustang IRS vert rears work
Tokico Blues Best available
Gabriel Sensatracks Lasted 3 years, comfy-cushy
Monroe something lasted 1 year, never great.
Konis and bilsteins would hold up to the sport springs; nothing else really does for too long.
The Tokico shock and lowering spring kit have lasted 6 years, and are still good-.
With the lowering springs, there are clearance issues in places.
Like jacking the car up, lol...
