OEM Shocks

Can anyone help me out, I decided to use OEM shocks on my Marauder. And found out through the forum that they are made by Tokico. Now as I ordered them from the dealer, the dealer told me that the part number has changed to a new one (8w3z18125a) which I'm not sure is also made by Tokico. Or if this is the shock everyone was talking about in the first place.

Just a heads up...there are 3 or 4 different airbag/shock configurations. I have been led to believe all these years one of them is MM specific.....

See my garage file for part numbers and whatnot.

IMHO, this site- the members that I chat with- and the ones that I now Hang with- are like my 2nd family. There is such an ongoing welcome feeling here that even members who don't or no longer own the MM can feel.

Buyer be ware. After I removed the Naake QA1 f/r shocks some time ago I to ordered what I was led to believe oem. When I got them & installed them they were softer than a cheap after market. They were most likely for a grand marquis. After a few years of productiopn they can cross refence & interchage parts I was ******** they were not cheap & no were near close to oem. I pulled them & went with KYB coil over shocks in the front.

RoyLPita did a Nation wide search for me 1 1/2 years ago because I insisted on putting on the Origional Rear factory shocks on my marauder . He found me the last known set available. Since then Ford has changed the part # and the shock isn't the same as the Origional ones . I a few weeks ago I took them off with 6031 miles on them and had to put QA1's on because I had put 305's on the rear.
