Strut/Shock options for '95 T-bird

Hi,

What performance Strut/Shock options are there available for my T-bird. Looking at getting rid of the Monroe Reflex's I have on now.

Thanks.

I was looking at this kit here Tokico Advanced Handling Suspension Kit: HPK221

Not sure about it. Looking for opinions and suggestions on improving the handling of the T-bird.

Thanks.

depends if you want to lower your car at all.

I like the ford sport front shocks, and the ford cobra vert rear shocks. Nice nice combo.

Vogtland makes a kickass set of springs for these cars, i went with the 1'' drop and i like it lots.

The tokico springs are a little soft and bouncy but its an ok kit, the motorcraft shocks are better than the tokico blues imho.

Will the Ford dealer install that combo or will they insist on the standard for the T-bird?

Thanks.

probably not, do it yourself. Flat Rate is quite steep at the dealership.
