While most of the repairs needed to my 93 Esprit have been minor this time (recharge freon, reconnect vent line to carbon canister), they did find that I needed new rear shocks. At $400 for the pair of Lotus shocks that is a big OUCH. In any event if I am replacing the shocks what is the current thinking on best brand?

Spax is about $450 for a pair and will give you ride height and dampening adjustability. I am hearing the quality of these shocks is good from JAE. Protech is a little cheaper with the same benefits from SJ Sportscars in UK. I have heard through the grapevine that Gaz has quality problems, but check me on that.

If your rear are bad, the fronts probably are not far behind.
