Has anyone replaced their stock shocks for Bilstein or Koni etc yet? I can't seem to find any aftermarket shocks being produce for the flex. Would SHO shocks AWD be the same part? Also are all the shocks struts or 2 struts and 2 regular tube shocks? Any sway bar upgrades for the vehicle? Thanks in advance.

Flex has struts in the front, shocks in the back. Taurus struts don't quite fit, I think it's just the sabilizer bar mount that is a bit different. But anything valved for a Taurus is going to feel too loose on a heavier Flex.

I use Bilsteins (have had them for a year +) and I like the way they drive. haven't tried out Koni so far, but they also seem to have a lot of good reviews. Though mind, that to me Bilsteins drive firmer, than the OE shocks I had before.

So is there a Bilstein or Koni shock/strut fitment for the Flex?
