    Koni's are the top shocks for an f body. Especially if you plan on lowering the car. Bilsteins are the other popular option for those who can not afford the koni's. It all depends on what your suspension plans aer. AS far as strut mounts you can get OEM mounts from rock auto. There is always a 5% discount code for rock auto on the web.

    I have the KYB AGX adjustable shocks my self, but I got them free for doing Koni's and Strano's on a friends car. I couldn't beat the deal. I would go bilsteins for the price, but Koni's are so sick and way better.
