Question Monroe Shock Absorbers .... for a CVPI ?

Hello,

This is my first post.

Seven weeks ago I found and bought an ultra clean 1999 P71 with 125K on it. Its an impressive car, my first Ford and first CVPI, and I totally enjoy it.

I am contemplating putting Monroe 550010 (front) and Monroe 550011 (rear) Magnum series gas shocks on the vehicle.

Has anyone had experience with these shocks, or other Monroes, on a P71? How do the Monroe shocks compare, differ, and hold up to other choices that are popular... and also to the stock Ford shocks??

I wanted to retain a smooth ride, yet have control in the corners. I am hesitant to go to Bilsteins, despite their handling reputation, as I want to keep a decent ride, and not have the shocks "beat up" the car (and me).

An other alternative is Edelbrock IAS shocks with a rubber top bushing on the front shocks, at a premium price. However, in the past, on many other vehicles, I have always had fine results with Monroe.

Who has tried Monroes on CVPIs and what can you tell me ??

Thanks in advance!

Jeff Medwin
