    what do you guys think of the kyb gr2s? just did a swap and i gotta get rid of the body roll around turns. dont have much money and i already have cheap springs and my stock suspention sucks. does anyone know if the gr2s more for comfort or race?

    p.s. even tho my suspention sucks, last night i spanked a ford s.h.o. FA SHO

    KYB supposedly valves the GR-2 to be 15% stiffer than stock. They would be mostly good for something better than a stock replacement, not to go all out stiff. They are damn good for the money though, and they'll definitely be better than your blown out shocks.

    id say get agx all the way around.

    the gr2 is basically a slightly better than stock replacement. dunno how they would perform with a drop.

    I've had no problems with GR-2s under a drop. The CRX was down about 2.5 inches, and the truck is down about 2 inches without any problems at all.
