    Hello all, currently heading back to college and low on funding. I've got an SN95 Cobra and it is in need of some new shocks and springs. I would like to keep the budget to $600 or so if i could. It's a daily driver and hasn't seen a strip. Lowering would be nice, but definitely not requirement.

    Anyone have a decent recommendation for my price tag? Car is stock other than exhaust.

    thanks guys for any help.

    I'm guessing, based off your budget, that you are not looking to go coil over? When it comes to shocks, Koni is a great budget option. A step above that would be Bilstein. Maximum Motorsports sells them both, valved properly for SN95 application. http://www.maximummotorsports.com/1994-1998-Cobra-C376.aspx

    As far as springs go, you have a lot of options based off your budget and intended use. Here's a little list of springs I have bookmarked that [MENTION=10532]MadStang[/MENTION] put together a while back. Should help you choose.
