Re: Uprated shocks for BA's
I think Ford chose a too soft spring rate on the front of these cars. I don't think the shocks are overly bad. I will however comment that after driving a BA Pursuit with a couple thousand kays on board my Pursuit with 27000km feels soft. The shocks are already wearing noticeably, especially in rebound.
I'd suggest trying the off-the-shelf Bilsteins which I have heard great things about. Problem is they are proving so popular they are normally on back order (no stock as I write). I think they're $500+ a pair for the fronts but they'll last the life of the car and you can do what I do - swap them out when you sell.
