Hey guys I got a 2000 Mustang GT with 145,000 miles on it. I am in need of new rear shock. The ones I have now bounce a lot when I go over bumps or even just push on it. I live in Tennessee so there's a lot of hills and nasty back roads that I go on a lot. I need some shocks that will give me a fun ride when I'm on those curvy backroads, but will also not be too stiff when going over bumps. I just a brand of shocks that would be good for my needs. And if you could attach a link on here of a specific pair that would be great!

Ford C springs would probably be best. They are the same ones on the bullit. They offer the a good balance between comfort and performance. I'm goin for those when I get around to it. I Also see there are B springs not sure the difference. I'm sure sombody will chime in on them.

he said he needs shocks.

it depends on how much $$$$ youre willing to dish out. give us a dollar amount to work with and you'll get a better response.

have you recently replaced your struts? if not, you can bet they're probably hammered **** after that many miles. consider replacing them while you're at it, and you'll be much happier with your ride.

KYB shocks and struts on Ebay for like $180 I saw them a while back looked like the guy had quite a few of them.

Skip the KYB's, they just don't last very long.

You can get Koni STR.T's for around $60 each if you look around, and they're a great shock, much better than anything else you can get for that price.

If you plan on drag racing, you can also get Strange Adjustables for $65 each, but they're not gas charged, so they are a compromise for drag racing oriented vehicles.

I would recommend the Koni STR.T's if this is a street oriented car though.

You can also pick up a set of Tokico Bullitt/Mach 1 shocks for $98 at rockauto.com. Can't beat that and a VERY good shock for the money. I can provide a link.
