I think that Dennis (Mad Dog), among others, has been using Aldan shocks for quite a while if a very stressing environment. It seems like a small amount of data is being extrapolated past it's useful value.
And everyone knows that all Panteras overheat and have terrible handling?

It sounds like your mind is already made up.... realizing it's time to ditch the Aldan's is the single biggest step.
I have QA1's (what were Carrera's) on both Pantera's and very happy with them. Available from Summit Racing in either single or double adjustable with either heim or poly ends and a variety of spring rates available off the shelf too. Some of the Pantera vendors will sell you them too if you are conscious of giving them the business.
