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.

best shock

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.

Have you ordered from them? I saw the low price, but I'm a bit suspicious when it comes to ordering online.

97 T-Bird Sport: Dynomax catback, Removed silencer w/ K&N panel, DReinhart chip, Lightning AGSF12-FM1 plugs/180 stat, Tokico 1.25" dropped stance, bye bye fender gap

'79 F100 SB : 300 ci six, Hurst Mastershift 3spd floor shifter, Offenhauser intake, Holley 4 brrl, EFI manifolds, Chebbie Rockers, Summit Racing 3.50 gearset, DISO 2.5" diesel muffler and 2.5" exhaust, Its'a six?!
