need new shocks...
both front/rear. i've read stuff, talked to people, rang places and have a choice of 4 brands, from cheapest:
Koni and Blistein are both fully rebuildeable, koni is a bit more expensive. There is a big price difference between the 1st two and 2nd two. At some shock shop the guy said unless im planning to take my car to the track there is no point getting blistein and that monroe will be good for just normal driving.
what im worried about is if i get monroe and they turn out worse than my current stock 1993 suspension, which i have no idea what it is.
what do u guys think?
one more thing, at the front i know there is 'bump stops', do rear shocks have this, is that what rear shock mounts are?
