Default What replacement struts are everyone using?

My car only has 61,000 miles, but is a little loose as far as the up and down suspension motion is concerned. Just wondering what everyone is suing when they replace their struts?

Not to steal rel3rd'* thunder... but I logged on this eveining to ask the same thing.

Specs:
1992 SSEi
185,000 miles
Air suspension (rear)

Would like a stiffer ride than stock, for performance reasons and the fact that I like to feel SOME bumps. I'm thinking Monroe Reflex (?) or similar. Suggestions please?

Thanks!

Do all Bonnevilles have the ELC/air suspension in the rear??

My build sheet states that I have: FE1 Soft Ride Suspension

One more quick thing... Any suggestions on websites to purchase these from (Will?)? shockwarehouse.com has sensatracs but doesn't list the reflex.... They say they will upgrade if possible, yadi-yada.

No to Napa (Sensatrac only)... no offense!

No to all Bonnys with rear air as well... ELC was an option.
