Good afternon All,

 

It's time to replace the stock shocks & struts on our 2009 ride.  Any ideas, suggestions or personal experience would be appreciated.  I have traditionally used Bilstein, however, I can only find units for Navigators and Town Cars. Thanks.

What's wrong with Motorcraft?

No issue with Motocraft. However, I was hoping to upgrade to a performance set-up.

You're not typically going to find better performance from non-OEM shocks on these vehicles and in a lot of cases you'll get worse ride quality.  The OEM shocks are tuned very carefully along with the suspension for optimal performance and ride quality.
