    gotta wait more then an hour for a responce when you post in the middle of the day.




    Anyways, you want to not only get a shock that will work with lowered vehicles, you want one that is going to be valved right too. The skunks are a real stiff spring, you would be wasting your money to get tokikos or even AGX's with those springs, because they will blow out relatively quick. I had AGX's on skunks, and the RR blew after about 4 months, the LR held on for about 10. About the only shocks that are valved close enough to handle the skunks are Koni Yellows. They are expensive, but it sure beats having shocks every year. Also, since you have skunks, your going to need an adaptor sleeve or something (i forget what they call it) for them to work with the Yellows. Anyone that sells Yellows should be able to get them. good luck.
