    shocks for street driving?

    I've been pouring through this forum and I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. I've got a 2000 TA convertible, all stock except for stereo and wheels(18" ruff) I don't race, and really don't even drive the car hard at all. It's more of a cruiser for me. I've got 57k miles on it and it feels like it's time to replace the stock shocks. I'm not going to lower the car and just looking for shocks that will be a better ride on the street. What do you guys suggest?

    Shocks

    I just had a set of Tokico shocks installed on my Firebird today (thanks Sam). The installation was a little more costly than they estimated but I could tell immediately on the ride home that the car handled much better.

    Tokico are great, and Koni is another alternative you should consider... depends on your budget.
    I'd recommend you call Sam @ www.stranoparts.com and tell him what your goals are and he'll help you a lot... he has helped me a lot, and basically 1 of the only people I could talk suspension and actually know what they are talking about. haven't found any other shop that really knew their stuff suspension wise, except LG... but they treated me like crap... so I spent my $ elsewhere.
