    ok..so i put the billestien's in the rear a while back, but its time for new front struts in my 96. Anyone know where to get them for the best price? Are they worth the price?

    I found them on performance products for 140ish shipped. I can get sensatrac's for cheaper. Just wondering for preformance wise.. Thanks

    the bilstein 5100's will be alot better than any sensatrac you can get. if the bilsteins will work......thats what ya need.....great ride and performance, and you use them with your stock coils. downsouthmotorsports,on ebay, has the best deals on the billy's!!

    they make the bilstein 5100's for front and rear, but only the front are adjustable for ride height.
