    ford towers = ford stealership....$17 or so apiece, won't find better.

    if you know the shock P/N, you can order thru summitracing.com for IIRC $28 per shock, tho they aren't stock so you wait a few weeks.

    shock p/n's can be found in the tech links, in the shock spreadsheet.

    woody,
    when you mount the new ford towers are the bolt patterns the same? are the ford mounts taller?

    ford mounts are taller, about 2-3". They mount with 2 bolts and "should" be welded on as well...even better, brace the backside a bit. The holes are close to the stock rivit holes but not exact.

    I forgot...Doetsch DT3000's can be purchase direct from the company and ship quicker that way (usually). I ordered part #3368 which are 29.5" extended and 17" compressed for and overall 12.5" of flex. They also make a 32" by 18.5" for 13.5" of travel....part #3403. Both are $40 a piece from Doetsch with free shipping.
