thats what I had in my car but I bought mine second hand so they might have been on their wayout, the back sagged a bit.

Im also looking into these shocks with king springs and apparently there pretty good as ive chatted to another forum member who has used them in his BA XR6 Turbo and now EL XR8. He thinks there a great shock for there money so they may be abit better than Boge and Ultima from the reports???

i have superlows and monroe gt's on my ed xr6. The setup is firm, but it's still pretty comfortable on most surfaces and handles fairly decent. They're also cheapish so i'd say go for it.

monroe shocks came out standard on the el's so if the were good enough for oem you would assume that the quality is decent...

If your running superlows, make sure the shocks are short throw shocks.
