Just for anyone interested. The shockwarehouse www.shockwarehouse.com has Monroe Sensatrac for $134.12 for all four corners - this is for an '88, shocks and struts, free shipping, and Monroe has a rebate through 4/30 of $75.00 prepaid card, on purchase of 2 shocks and 2 struts - total cost is $59.12 for all four. You might not be that crazy about Monroe, but . . . for the money. Didn't look for earlier model front cost, but should be similar.

Eariler models didn't have that special.



Never mind. I see the rebate form now to print out.


I may do this.

Almost as good as the deal I got 3 1/2 years ago.

No, not each... for all four of them!

How are Monroes compared to KYB's for a lowered car?

IMO Monroe is one step above Gabriel, both low end.
KYB is better than both IMO. Of course there are many better than that as well.

I can't compare, as I've not driven/ridden on KYBs, but I have Monroe sens-a-trac on all 4 corners with Eibach springs, happy with the performance for the dollar. KYB are better shocks, but the Monroe's are good for the cruising I do.

Keep in mind that Monroe has more than one line of struts and shocks. I've had Monroe Sensa-Tracs on both my lowered '84 duke and '88 Formula for years... and have been quite satisfied with them for daily-driving and for autocross.

I regards to better or worse are we talking about quaility, performance and handling, comfort or a combo of those?

One of my car's handles very well, but is very uncomfortable on bumps (PO put them in and had raced the car) One of my others is really soft and comfortable, but in turns its pretty bad, so I'm thinking to replace both cars if I can find a medium ground betweem the two.
Would these be a good choice for that? I know next to nothing on shocks and suspension set up, so there could be other factors that are affecting the ride and handling of my cars.

I have Sensa-Tracs on both of my 88s. Both moderately lowered. I'm quite happy with the ride and the handling.

I am about to click on the order button and started to wonder if I should get strut mounts also?

Opinions?

This is for a Colorado born and raised '88 GT with around 83,000 miles.

Thanks in advance, and I will hold off ordering until I get some feedback.......

Are you talking about the plates with the rubber bushings? I reused mine. (Actually flipped them, when I lowered the car.)

Has the rubber deteriorated on the existing strut mounts? If not, don't bother.

I did the same as Raydar and flipped the rear mounts on both of my lowered Fieros.

Thanks guys,
I don't have it yet, so I am not sure how the rubber is, so guess I will wait to order until then.

Thank you for the feedback guys.

Raydar, that car looks to be more than "moderately" lowered. I understand you are in a turn and all though. Nice pic.

Your mounts should be fine, unlike FWD cars they are stationary and don't move. I've replaced struts on Fieros that have sat in poor conditions for many years and fieros that have been been daily driven and I haven't seen a bad one yet. One thing I would definitely order is the bellow kits as I have found these in poor shape nearly every time. The kit includes a new bump stop too.

My 152K mile coupe came from the desert southwest. The mounts were still fine.
