New shocks on 2001 F53 chassis

The shocks on my 2001 Mirada were probably original, thats 15 years old with 70,000 miles on them.

The shocks were completely worn out. there was no resistance when pushing or pulling the shocks. New Monroe's ran $50 each, and took a couple hours to install.

I wrote them up on my blog site at:

It won't do MACH 2, but I can get a sandwich and take a pee.
