You can buy shocks individually...

The shock actually is what you'll want to look at. If it only rubs when the suspension is under load then you need to limit the amount of travel with the shock. Even if you raise the ride/resting height of the car with the urethane isolators, with the stock shock it will most likely still be allowed to travel to the point of rubbing. The shock will limit how much movement happens and at what rate it will dampen the travel. This is what I would look at.

Thanks David sounds like a good plan. is that Tokico D spec the brand you would get. So far I can only find 600+ dollar sets which include front as well. At least in that brand anyway.

I think they are in the ballpark of $140 a piece. Unless you plan to do some road racing and need the super fast damping, I would go with the Illuminas if you are getting Tokico. Think they are $120 each.

Most people just sell them in sets because you generally want all 4. If you can afford it, I would go ahead and replace them all. Just keep the stockers for back-ups or sell them. Might be a GT upgrade someone will pay for. I know my aftermarket shocks were factory for a Mach 1, and did wonders for me.

Ryan,

Keep in mind that you will be replacing the SVTPP package shocks. The Supersnake comes with the FR3 handling kit that includes the adjustables, you could look into them.

Other than the Ford Racing, the D-Specs should work great.

Man, I think I'm gonna try to sell the 315's and get 295's.

They will stick out 10 mm less on the outside, and 7 mm shorter. Those two things combined should keep my fender from bumping them.

Anyone want some 315's? still have 6/32 tread left (brand new is 7/32). They hook up really well...i'm getting the same brand again. New they are $925 at tire rack, I would go $590 for both local pickup just to get em out. 85% of new tire for 64% of the new price...great deal!

Plus you will probably save at least a pound or two per tire in unsprung mass by going down to 295's = better handling, better braking, and less work on the rear to get the power down
