I replaced my Sport setup with the Monroe Sensa-Trak brand two years ago. I was more interested is a better ride than better handling. My et's were lowered as the shocks let the front end rear-up more on launch.
Total price: $231 for parts.
Much better ride that OEM sport shocks. But it did take some getting used to. Pavement that used to 'washboard' with the OEM setup was smoothed out a lot.
