Default Help: Strut and shock question?

So I知 new to owning a saleen I have a 01 saleen that I知 wondering if the struts that came stock was adjustable I don稚 think they was but not sure and also my car is very rough riding when I hit a numb sounds like my shock is bottoming out I知 guessing it痴 because the shock needs to be replaced so figured if I知 doing the back shocks might as well get the fronts done.

Default Bilstein/Racecraft Shocks and Struts

Hey there. Yes, without a doubt a 2001 Saleen riding a little spongy, will need shocks and struts. I don't think Bilstein even offers these any longer. The closest thing to replacements are the Bilstein HD's. The Bilstein's, both the N2's and the HD's, are rebuildable. You can call Bilstein and see how much to rebuild. There are comparable Shocks and Struts out there just got to do your homework. Your ride will ride like a new car with new shocks and struts, with new end links and tie rods. Post up what you find and what you replace with. Something that many will benefit from.

I recently put new N2's all the way around even quad shocks and replaced all suspension bushings up front, not rear which I still have to do. Totally worth it though. Good place to start is shocks and struts. Very important for ride quality.

Thanks I took my car in and my shocks are getting close to needing replaced but the tie rods I did end up replacing inner and outer rods I知 doing some more research on the shock and stut to go with.
