Default performance struts all around... wtb/ need advice...

1990 Olds Toronado. needs struts all the way around. This is what I get from monroe.

"Thank you for your interest in our products. Part numbers are as follows for your vehicle:

Front 71854
Rear 71801 (air strut)"

these look like drop ins for the ones already in the car. I was wonderin if there are perf grade ones that will stiffin up the ride much? I drive liek a mad man sometimes nad wanna better ride.. seriously.. after driving the 5spd civic around twon there is nothing short of a austin mini that I wanna drive.. I rag on it around corners and I jsut think that my 90 toro should handle as well as my 1977 oldspace car.. </chevy 9c1 suspension>
front heavy duty shocks and adjustible airs in the rear to handle better coming outta turn 4 at indy yeah .. when I get to race it there.. hah ..</dreams>

Monroe - you want to use the sensi tracs

KYB GR2'*- gets lots of raves, not sure whats going on here though. They dont seem to have them for 90-92

Your going to find your self leveling rear air struts are going to be expensive. I know someone that converted their shot air system with rear struts for Reatta. Not sure about the year Toro though. I dont know what the difference is between the 86-89 and 90-92.

You could also upgrade your suspension with Trofeo parts from a junk yard or parts car.
