Little bit of a loaded question...Do you want a smooth ride or performance?
I have never driven my tri-5 but, on other performance vehicles I have used Bilstein and Edlebrock's. I can tell you a quality shock makes a huge difference.

Yeah Dc I should have elaborated...I had regular monroe on when I bought the car over 3 yrs ago then switiched to Monroe gas Sensatracs 2 yrs ago but now I want the best, smoothest ride with good handling not after extreme cornering capablilities just dont want to hear clunking when hitting a pot hole or bump in the road.

So all of you: Bilstein, Koni, Kyb, or QA1 shocks for a very smooth, nice ride??

You should check out my thread here:

These are quality shocks and although I haven't road-tested them, the Viking folks used to work at QA-1 so they're very similar (and made in the USA too!). You can get double adjustable Vikings for the same price as the single adjustable QA-1's. Not gonna get much more than that for the price unless you go with some pretty high end custom shocks that will require a lot of fab work.

Front coilovers are about $500 with the springs. Without the springs, from Global West they're about $390 for the front pair. Same for the rears. So, about $185/ea.

You can call Global West about them or call Viking. Price will be the same I think.
