i sport a 94 thunderbird lx, the shocks are shot. im lookinf for replacement, i want some performance, but i dont want to pay too much, im only 19, and pretty much looking for the best my money can get. any help?
Best for money? I'd go with sport shocks. You'll have to use Sport shocks in the front and 03 Cobra shocks in the rear. They aren't as inexpensive as basic replacement shocks, but they will give you a firmer, more solid ride.

In my oppinion I would recomend the monroe Reflex shocks and struts. They are a little pricer than most shocks. They are firm compared to the lx shocks but they have a special inertial valve that if you hit a hard bump or pothole it will open up momentarly making the shocks softer so they don't beat you to death. Do not get the sensetracks because they are too soft and make the factory lx shocks look like racing shocks.
