Question Q: Replacement N2 struts and shocks?

Are they worth the money. Are they just as good or not as good as Bilsteins?
Thanx
Dang can edit shocks on title

Get yourself a soda Bilstein and Maximum Motorsports caster camber plates. If you really want to go trick we can do Maximum Motorsports coil overs!

Saleen Performance use to say the Bilstein era Racecraft shocks / struts were valved specifically for Saleen. IE: they were not 100% an off-the-shelf item.

The SN95 era Saleen Mustang conversions used shocks and struts made by Carrera for Saleen. Carrera became Q1A.

From memory, Saleen may have used 1987-93 Mustang struts on the early SN95 Saleen conversions do to the Saleen-spec lowering springs.

If you are not hard set on OEM, then the Bilstein HD's would work just as well for 94 04 cars. Those are still available.

I guess that's my question, I read that B6 Bilstein are for OEM springs and the B8 versions are meant for lowered cars.
So I would think that I would need the B8 versions of the B8 versions.

Someone actually did a side by side and the measurements are the same. The only thing different is the valving slightly. Yes B8 for a lowered car...B6 for stock gt height. And the M0 were the OE saleens. B6 and B8 still available. All will work fine though. Just don't get the IRS ones unless you are IRS.
