Who makes good quality replacement struts and shocks for the 88 turbo coupe? Would they still be elec. controlled?

There are none that retain the PRC system. Monroe makes 1 or 2 models. Search on Monroe and you will find info

There is always the conversion to coil overs. Not cheap.

Like Pete said, PRC shocks / struts are not around anymore..... maybe a few sets left in the country.... maybe. If you found some, they would cost BIG $$. I have a complete set of 4 brand new PRC sitting in my shop. No, they are not for sale at ANY price. Smile

I recently purchased a pair of Monroe #5861's for the rear of mine - They are supposed to be a drop in from what the parts people could figure out. Will find out soon.

Too bad someone hasn't figured out how to use the PRC output to drive something larger and adjust manual adjustable shocks or something similar.
