After seeing how dead fordtaurus.net was, I see this forum is much more active. I have a 2006 Montego AWD. yes, I have Nivomat rear shocks.. oi.

Have been researching a retrofit into the newer, standard shocks for the back since one of my rears is now dropping (after an oil change hoisting that put it over the edge and caused it to start failing).

Called my local dealer- build date was 12/2/2005, three days too early for the non-Nivomat! Dang it!

Looks like the big hold up is the springs.. if you swap the shock as an assembly with the heavier spring, should be fine. I will post my findings, otherwise, hello everyone
