Re: what are quatro shocks for a 1990 gt

The quad shocks were introduced in 1984 on V8 model Mustangs and Capris. They do help to keep the rearend planted to the ground during high torque launches. You can find these shocks mounted between the regular shock and the wheel in an angle almost vertical to the outside frame rail near the gas tank. They mount to the top front of the axle housing. KYB makes a set available a latemodelrestoration.com- the # is KYB-KG4521 for years 84-93 and they are $38.95 US each.

Hope this helps!
