Over the years I have owned four Falcons. I used air shocks,longer shackles,coil over shocks and recurved springs.I think the recurved springs with KYB self adjusting shocks worked the best for ride and handling.The air shocks rode hard and I hated the look of the long shackles and the load lever shocks rode harsh and bounce on hard bumps.My latest Falcon runs coilover shocks with a four link system. I like it the best. You can set the ride height and the rebound on the shocks . It handle great and gets no wheel hop.It's set to run with the back up just a small amount over the front, but the whole car rides lower than the stock height.Roger
