I'm going to replace my shocks on my '93 Aerostar 3.0. It's just getting
to the point where the tires are off the ground more than they're on the
I was wondering if my fellow Aerostarers could help me decide on a
shock. I'll be putting them on myself. I want a nice smooth ride, that's
the most important thing. I rarely have cargo in the back. In fact I
took out the back seats, so that's probably 180lbs less, which in turn
probably makes the ride harsher. I want something inexpensive.
Performance and handling aren't really an issue for me. I drive it easy.
If I go Monroe then probably the MonroeMatic would do me fine.
Comparable to that would be Gabriel's Guardian. Gabriel also has the
Proguard which is probably more suited for vans and light trucks. But as
I said, I don't haul much so I don't think I'd need it.
