I lean towards Bilsteins, however as I do not get to drive the P-38 like I stole it, possibly Monroes will be just fine.
Sorry to hear that your traffic laws are getting even more draconian!
I have loosely followed the slow degradation of the driving conditions over there via Clarkson's rants on Top Gear over the years....
Not quite that bad here, in fact, if you do less than 80mph on most freeways, you are road kill!.
That's why when I want to go have a good solid off road hooning session, I go down to Oz and break out the trusty '85
Virtually no rules or regs once you leave the sealed roads! How cool is that??
On a recent 20,000km trip round Oz, about 50% off sealed roads, we saw exactly 3 cops, all parked in towns......Beaut!
I would love to get hold of a P-38 down there and do the trip again clockwise this time.....Just as a comparison.
