Default Stipe shocks

I'm looking forward to installing my stipe shocks, they shipped them today. I've had them on order for quite a while.

Not cheap but you get what you pay for. They are outstanding quality.

Excellent quality, perfect fit and no leaks. I am a machinist so I know excellent quality when I see it.

It's nice to read that people are pleased with their shocks. I believe these will be the last time I will have to buy shocks. They will still be functioning after I'm gone.

Best to call. Back when I got mine I was on a waiting list for two months and had to give a deposit.

Well worth the wait, I have had them on my car for ~7 years now, no problems.

I received my stipe shocks today and they are first class. They are so nice I almost hate to mount them on the car, but I said almost so on they will go. I was on a waiting list for a few months also and they said the list is long.

I also hesitated to spray it black. It would be looking nicer if they are mounted transparent, but then would Mr. Ford turning round in his grave, I think.
