    ok.. i found some KYB GR2 shocks that have been used for a couple of months and they are $200 for all four corners.. just wondering if this was a good deal...

    and to my next question.. i was going to buy a set of springs to go with them instead of my cheap ass coilovers, i'm sick of a shitty ride.. what springs would you suggest for a DD?? haven't tracked the car yet and if i do iy would be seldom.. so they will basically be for around town and what not.. just looking for a comfortible ride, nothing too stiff

    i was thinking of the Neuspeed Sport springs, but not too sure... not looking to spend a fortune..

    shitty deal and those suck for anything more than stock or a little lower than stock. yes i owned them so i can comment on them.

    h and r race or sport with some kyb agx's would be a nice ride, look on ebay the prices are cheapo.

    I would NEVER buy any used suspension components, EVER...


    EVER, ever, ever, ever, ever, ever.


    and as far as springs, RSR springs are the fucking BOMB.

    the fact that you can get them valved for any spring rate is a good thing. Koni makes quality parts.
