^^ agreed. Put a set of the sensa tracs on my last truck and they were as close to OEM as I could find. Spoke to a Monroe rep when I worked at a local parts store and he said they were designed to ride like factory
If you do go with the Monroe Sensa-Trac (front-37081, rear-37082) on your 97 4.0 open a free Advance account, order them online, use one of the below discount codes, pick up at the local store, and you'll save quite a bit of money.
At $45/each I'd place 2 separate $90 orders, throw something else in the cart you need for $10 on each order then use TRT41 for $40 off $100. This is one of the better codes, should save you $80, I use it all the time, and good luck!
Note: free shipping on orders over $75 but doesn't apply when you knock the price down below this when using discount codes.
I usually do that then use the in store pickup option. That way, I get the good savings and I don't have to pay shipping. What I normally do is add some of the rear hatch stoppers to my cart. I tend to go through those about every 6 months anyhow...
