Shock/strut replacement

Hi All!

I have 70k on my '96 and have been thinking it is time for new shocks and struts. I don't do any track stuff, just normal cruising. What would you suggest for replacements to the stock stuff? I want to keep the ride as original as possible, and have at least as good or better handling.

Thoughts?
Thanks!
Chris

Bilsteens are known for good ride quality yet still good for aggressive driving - Ford put them in the Lightning and 03/04 Cobra for that reason. Not sure what valving to go with for a 96 cruiser though - someone like Maximum Motorsports might be able to help you choose the appropriate ones for your desired application.
