So, the rear sport shocks WERE # AS1030G (F7AZ18125KA)????? I've got sport rear shocks and they're white.... my current stock shocks are black... was the number for the sport shocks used on the LX shocks when canceled?
I checked around here in South Florida and found the rear OEM sport shock (F6SO 18880 CA - made in Spain - color black) is no longer available. It's been replaced by the Motorcraft AS 1030 G - color white, which is for the LX and and now the sport.
The replacement shock seems to work well. But the white shock was smaller in diameter and the shaft was also smaller. I couldn't use the old shaft bushing that fit on the OEM sport shock and went into the trunk opening. The bushings that come with the "white" shock must be used.
I've heard that you can purchase the Tokico shock for the Super Coupe, set it on firm and end up with the same firmness as the OEM sport shock. Haven't tried that myself.
