I just put a set of these on my 1995 Explorer about a month
ago.  So far I think they are great (although the factory
ones were shot so anything would have been an improvement).
The local auto parts store I got them from carried both these
and the Bilsteins, but the Reflex shocks were about half the
price (Monroe were $36.99, Bilstein $74.99).  Years ago I
put a set of the Monroe Sensa-trak shocks on our 1991 Explorer
(which we traded for the 1995 we have now) and I never really
liked them, but the valving of those shocks and the new Reflex
shocks is completely different so I hope they work out better.
I guess time will tell, but so far they have greatly improved
the ride and handling.

Thanks, Brent Bolte

Subject: A/C installation for 91 Ranger
Date: Tue, 12 Dec 2000 18:33:19 -0800

After much deliberation, I have decided to keep my 91 Ranger 4x4
(4.0/auto)IF and only IF I can install a/c into it w/o too much hassle.  Can
anyone give my any advice here?  My thoughts are to try and get a complete
system out of a fresh wreck.  I have plenty of mechanical/electrical skills
so I'm not too worried unless there's something unknown that would make it
real difficult.  Also, I'm intending on using an R-12 system since they cool
better (no environmental arguments please!).

The situation I'm in is that I have an excellent truck w/ every option I
know of except A/C.  I'm  now driving a lot more for work and don't want to
go without a/c in July & August.

Thanks,
Mark Biederbeck
