thats what the cobras came with stock...but i'd suggest some of MM revalved bilstein shocks if it were me. Just saying. I wish that i could buy a set of those for my ride...but i'll be sticking to the regular Bilstein HD's for my ride.

What do you want to do with the car?

You can just have your stock Bilsteins re-valved.

I just put in Tokico D Spec when I did the IRS swap and they seem pretty good. Can't go wrong with 16 way adjustability

I dont like my strange 10 ways. They are ok for a race car but i dont particularly like the street manors of them to be honest with you. I'm going with Bilstein HD's for the new suspension setup. If i can get 03 cobra stock front struts, i'll just end up buying new rear shocks in the spring or summer and doing coilovers on the front with part of my tax return. Wanna sell me your stock front struts for cheap when you swap out???

If you plan on tracking the car or auto crossing, skip the HD and get the sport valved.

Its mostly for street, but im broadening my horizons to open track and stuff. But if i buy some stock bilsteins off a cobra for the front, could i just buy them and then ship them to MM and get them revalved or something??? But i definitely want to go more for handling with the ability to go in a straight line rather than go in a straight line and be able to make it in a turn.
