    Upgrading shocks with a stock suspension

    The car needs shocks, right rear has puked out its oil and it just needs them Period. So what would work best for my car being as it has stock suspension height and will not be lowered, ever, won't be raced, perhaps driven hard in the corners on occasion but just a very well balanced general purprose shock? I'm looking to stay inexpensive as well, so anything super-high-quality is outta the question.

    Just put Bilstien HD shocks on my ws6 and they work great.
    Only other upgrades are sfc and strut tower. Big improvement over old shocks and they are not hard to install yourself.

    I had intended to install them myself all along. I had a good idea that I'd get the most thumbs-up for the bilstiens from what i've read. Anyone ballpark me a price?
