Standard shocks run fine. But if you want even greater performance.. then go KYB.. or if you got money to burn go Koni.

There's only 1 type of each that suit the falcons so you can't go wrong. Just ask your local suspension shop. Although each shop will recommend a different brand hehe

The performance shocks for superlows on E-series falcons are all the same length as the standard ford ones. The exception to that is that the koni's are height adjustable.

Dude trust me 100%... you do not run shortened shocks even with superlows. If you change your shocks the performance characteristics will be different i.e. they will be stiffer... however they will still be the exact same length as the standard shocks.

This is true for the E-series falcons. Not sure about the other Falcons.

No i'm saying if you wanna change the shocks.. go ahead and get a better brand. But they will not be shorter than standard ones.
They will be of a higher quality and have different ride characteristics.

It's all good. I was asking the exact same questions a month ago. That's the only reason I know.
