Koni would have to be the best option.. no doubt.

Check out the prices in the Totalweb/Fordmods Discount Suspension forum.

Can get them too. Dont beleive they're adjustable though. Damn good shock tho from what I've heard.

Bilsteins don't NEED to be adjustable - they simply excell straight out of the box. Even with the adjustment I never could make Konis feel decent - but once Bilsteins went in I was happy.

Waggin can get a full set of the YELLOW externally adjustable Konis for about $800-900 the set which is an extremely good price.

As for Bilsteins, I've been quoted around the $1200 mark.

Bilstein's are the way to go :P :D I had tickford as standard but the bilsteins are FAR superior (why do Mercedes etc use them as STANDARD if not THE BEST?).

Yep, the variable valving system in Bilsteins is brilliant - almost like active suspension - ie. the outside suspension which is under load firms up whilst the inside almost seems to settle - it's like the road grows extra degrees of camber. Also Bilsteins make the suspension do it's job properly - you can get about really quickly without the go-kart effect that so many people MISTAKE as performance handling.
