Thanks Jonesin, I am looking at the Koni STR.Ts @ about $ 80 per shock , the Sachs for about $ 140 for two, bilstein HDs (black) @ $ 65 for 1 (but they are supposedly quite harsh, and I am not much for that. Just want a smooth + tight ride. I have been driving a grocery sedan all my life so far (Ford Taurus) and that too with not very good shocks. So anything will be an improvement.
Will the H&R or Eibach spring set work with the sachs set? Also, is there no other inexpensive alternative to a broken spring than a 4 piece sprink kit such as Eibach or H&R? Thanks for your time.
