    Default What Shocks/Struts to use?

    I've finally gotten tired with the old struts and shocks on my 93 giving me a rough ride and am looking to replace them. Anyone have any brand recommendations? I've always heard Blistein shocks are good but just want to explore all my options.

    What are your plans with the vehicle and what do you use it for most. These answers will help determine if a stock style replacement, mild performance, or high performance strut/shock is what you need.

    Bilstein, Tokico, Koni, Monroe, Gabriel, and others all make good struts and shocks. The trick is matching them to your spring rates and your intended use of the vehicle.

    Bilsteins had BETTER be good for what they cost! I love my Tokico HPs for a great ride/handling mix in a DD-style car!
