Needing new shocks/struts...

Looking to get Bilsteins, but not sure where to get them. Anyone have any suggestions??

Would '03-04 Cobra front Bilsteins work with the H&R supersports?? I'm looking for something better than the old Tokico 5-ways I have now. Thanks guys.

gotta pay to play....

the 03/04 Coupe Bilsteins will mate up with the H&R SS, but if you get the H&R Race, you definitely need the MM revalves IMHO.

But, look to spend about $500 for the 03/04's unless you find a good deal.

I'll stick with the H&R SS as I have them still in my garage.

I can find slightly used 03/04 front Cobra struts for about $200-300

For what you can save on used 03/04 struts, you could spend on a set Bilstein quads to go along with the new rear shocks

just got new quad shocks.....Ford stock ones for $18 each. Besides i'm planning on going Torque Arm some time so I don't want to invest too much into quads.
