LX vs. Sport

Ok, just gotta know. Is there a real big difference in the Sport shocks and the Standard shocks? I want to go with a firmer suspension for as little $$$$ as possible. Already got a line on some SC springs. What are the best affordable shocks for me?

Sport shocks man. They aren't available for the rear anymore though, but you may want to look into a set of '03-04 Mustang Cobra rear shocks. I have heard convertible shocks, they may be stiffer yet.

TCCoA, there's no better way.

I love my Sport shocks, I have them front and rear right now, however, since they are now 7 years old, it's time to replace them.

Replace them with what? Can you still get sport shocks from the dealer or your local O'reilly's? Whats the next best thing? Cobra shocks as mentioned earlier?
