What brand (part number too) rear drag shocks are every one running?

Plus what did you have to do to adapt the non cougar/bird shock to fit your MN-12?

Thanks Rick

The Cobra Bilsteins are plug and play. I run them with drag bags at about 5 to 10 psi in the Vogtland springs.

Please be more specific.

Part numbers and applications, year, there are for the rear.

Thanks Rick

They fit the 1999-2004 Mustang Cobra Convertible and therefore fit our car.

In fact, if you find a rear shock that fits the 1999-2004 Mustang Cobra Convertible then it will fit your MN12. There aren't a ton of choices but they will work.

The real question that would help us find what you're looking for is to understand what characteristics you want. Do you want a shock that's really stiff or one that's really soft?

:rofl: :uppoint:

This is the best we have been able to work out, but there are many issues, the biggest of which is the availability of the Mitsu 3k inserts.

MaddMartigan has really outdid himself by making some custom parts; Begging MIGHT help, I can't speak for him. :)
He Is a Fab Artist, as I can attest.

If you can fab stuff, that will help considerably.

As a group, we're fucked as far as the front goes, over the counter. :frown2:



Crap; I forgot about Bill, check the suspension section on SCP. >:)
