I have been looking for a replacement Bilstein shock. It looks like I will not be able to find one. Is there another company that sell a coil over shock that will work with my configuration, MKII with stock mustang LCA.
Thanks, Rafael

I put the Koni Coilovers from FFR on mine. I have the mustang-style lower control arms.

I’m happy with the pro shocks on my mk3,
I bought them through a local race parts shop.
I can probably find the part numbers if you want.

Send them back to Bilstein for the upgrade and rebuild.

I have a set of 4 ProShocks that were on my solid axle MKII when I bought it from the original builder. They had 4000 miles and have been sitting on the shelf since 2007. You are welcome to them if you will just cover the shipping. PM or email me.

Here’s the specs for shocks and springs on my car.
I gave this to the race shop and picked up the parts a week later.

Front
Pro shock #ASB546
Spring 10” 450lb

Rear
Proshock #ASB735
Spring 10” 250lb

I think my dads car has longer springs on the rear than the front,
You can probably reuse the springs you’ve got, I’m not sure about the other hardware.

I’m in Canada, due to some Transport Canada rule FFR doesn’t include shocks and springs in the Canadian kit.
I was building in 2007 when the problems with the bilstiens came up so I went with the proshocks.

Craig, I will take you up on your offer if they are still available.

I switched to the QA1's though the mounting hardware is bigger than the Pro Shocks.

SC210's part numbers are correct, and Speedway Motors sells them.
