Time for new shocks

It's time for new shocks & since I can't replace my old Bilsteins with new Bilsteins I'd like to get some opinions on what brand of shocks everyone recommends.

Thanks

If you can afford them, get Koni. If not, get KYB.

See HERE for a heated discussion of various shock choices.

You can get '03/'04 Cobra Bilsteins for the back. They are a good fit. I put a set on my car. Just do a search for Bilstein and you'll find lots of information.

Mods? Yea, I got mods ...
Air silencer delete, warp drive, dilithium crystals, flux capacitor, Slingshot Rubber band power adder, Moonshine & Gas, Leaf Blower Supercharger, Hamster Wheel & Hamster, Energizer Bunny generating 1.21 gigawatts, Mr. FusionŽ Home Energy Reactor, hover conversion and a sextant celestial navigation system (The original GPS)
Best 1/4: 1,320 nanoseconds @ 670,616,629.2 miles per hour

I know they don't make Bilsteins for our cars anymore but are you saying that the rear Bilsteins for an 03/04 Cobra will fit?

99-04 Cobra with independent Rear Suspension
Bilstein Part numbers are:

HD Front: F4-V36-4138-H3
HD Rear: F4-BE5-2959-HO

SP Front: F4-VE3-4593-WO
SP Rear: F4-BE5-C265-HO

HD are the Heavy Duty's
and
SP are the Sports

I think the sports are the firmer of the two choices used on the Cobra Convertibles. Only the rears are compatible with our cars.
