    Monroe Sensa-Trac are a decent "middle of the road" shock...can usually get those around $40 each depending on where you look.

    I put monroe-matics on a few months ago, no regrets. You may end up breaking a front bottom shock mount, a lot of people do. (I did too). There is a kit to fix that.

    I will say that the shocks I took off were motorcraft shocks, presumably factory, and they were significantly larger diameter than anything I could buy for less than $100. But the moneroe's work fine for me... as well as could be expected on a short wheelbase oversprung vehicle.

    I put on the monroe reflex ones. I'm fine with them. Monroe had a buy 3 get 4th free deal. They may or may not still have it.
