Shocks

Hi All,

I have a '01 DHG Bullitt that could quite possibly have the original shocks on it (there's 88,000 miles on the car). Without breaking the bank, what shocks do you recommend. MY budget would be about $700 (including installation). I've had the car now for almost 3 years.

Thoughts?

Dave

That's what I put on mine also. Night and day difference from the worn out stock ones.

My son had a 2003 Mach 1 and he put the Tokico blue shocks and struts on his and liked those too.

I would personally go with Eibach but those can be costing. Here is a list of some choices for you..

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I see that AmericanMuscle.com has the Koni STR-T, the full set, for about $340. Looks like a good deal. Someone did comment (in the reviews) that their car actually increased in height a bit after installing.....weird. Not sure about that comment? Anyway, I'll have a shop install them since it looks like quite the project and I'd rather not remove my springs, etc. Someone else can do that for me!

Don’t forget the axle dampers. I didn’t replace mine till last spring and it really made a difference. KYB gas dampers are the cheapest. Got mine from amazon .
And they will settle after you run them for a few miles.

Shocks/struts donít determine height. Just springs.

Sometimes when they are new they will be a bit sticky on rebound. Had this happen several times with Bilsteins, and the ride hide settled after a week or so.

In my defense, I was left unsupervised.
