Recommendation for replacing PRC struts and shocks?

Is replacing the PRC struts and shocks with non PRC's on my 88 TC as simple as just obtaining some new ones that are spec'd for say a Sport model or does it get more complicated than that?

I have been told Koni Yellow with H & R race springs are amazing, but I don't think you will find anything that handles like the PRC, plus when you are on very rough roads you can set to auto for a smooth ride, I'm trying to find a extra set of PRC struts & shots for our Mark VII Special Edition, I hear they are a direct fit. The automatic switching won't happen due to lack of sensors: G-Force, Braking and Acceleration, but I'm fine with the switch to change settings.....

I just bought a set of Tokico D-specs (10 way adjustable).
P.M me later for test results. They're being shipped this week. As far as I know you need a standard Tbird strut mounts (tops) same year model. I got Maximum Motorsports Caster Camber Plates instead.

We put KYB GR2 struts on our LeMon and cut 1 1/2 coils. They work very well.

I believe we ordered for a Mustang GT, and installed home made 1/8" thick spacers.

here is one for the 5.0 T bird:
