Why do all performance struts say "excluding ABS"?

I´m looking around at suspension components for a GT i´m thinking of buying, and I´ve noticed that all the performance aftermarket struts say that they´re not for ABS equipped Escorts.

You can get Monroe Sensatrac´s that work with the ABS models. Why not Tokico´s?

How would Monroe´s work with Eibach Pro-Kit springs? I don´t want problems with ABS and i don´t want a ´bouncy´ ride because the struts aren´t up to snuff.

Seems like you´ll get one or the other... good handling with a blinking ABS light... or bouncy ride and no ABS light.

Maybe I should look at a VW GTI instead?

Do you have an escort with ABS? I thought the ´96 was the only one and there are darn few of those around.

anywho I beleieve it just has to do with a bracket but don´t bet your life on that. You can snag tokico struts fro the zx2 S/R that will fit any 91-96 escort (unless you have ABS?). they run 160 for all four
