Default Recomend shocks please

Thinking about suspension upgrades for the future. Performance handling is more of a priority than ride comfort, I'm hoping to get here out on the 1/4 mile come spring as well as back out to the oval track. Just wondering what other members are running for aftermarket shocks on rides similar to mine and where you bought them from.

http://www.williamwren.com/struts/elc.html

Has some general guidelines on what'* stiffer than what. Reflex is no longer available. Rumored to be reintroduced soon under a different name.

I suggest Sensatrac'*. Equivalent of KYB GR-2.

Are the struts the same if you don't have ELC?

No, the part number will be different.
