Im working part time at Advance auto so I can get them relativly cheap. We carry the Manroe sens-a-trac shocks for the rear of the IRS cobras so I was thinking of going with that or we have the heavy duty Monroe gas-matic shocks made for the bird. I have the Eibach pro-kit springs on it now and was lookin to stiffen the rear up a bit more. Even though they're not the Bilsteins would the cobra sens-a-tracs be stiffer than any stock bird shock or would those heavy duty bird shocks be the way to go? Thanks.

I can't say for certain, but I would venture to say this...

Manufacturers probably keep the valving the same between shock families. E.G. one sensatrac is valved the same as another on a different car. The dynamics and characteristics of the car would be more influence on the way the shock responds.

Again, just speculation on my part.

Speculation from someone who knows alot more about this stuff than I do is good advice to me. Thanks Brandon. I took both down and checked to see how hard they were to compress and they felt about the same to me. Its hard to tell.

I will not use monroes on a mn12 they just don't feel right. I use them on everything else however. For stock replacement the gabriels seem to work better and are dirt cheap.
