    How much would a used set of KYB adjustable shocks (741005/7 Fr/Rr) and H&R sport springs be worth? Give me a spectrum based on condition and miles I suppose. And anything else I will need for application on a sol? Here is a pic..

    well for my mirage i had that same combo and it was 640 bucks total.


    5 years later and 50K strong they may not belong to me but have a lifetime warranty and take a beating.

    Yeah $550-650 is about what they go for new, so take that price into consideration based on how many miles are on them and what the condition is. I'd try to get half or less personally, but it's a very good setup and I guarantee you won't be disappointed. Unless the shocks are blown or something of that nature :D

    Ya I know... but I get the feeling its gonna cost twice as much to get a good adjustable shock... This is a daily driver, so I just want firmer ride, less body roll, as I have posted before more like my BMW M, but I don't really wanna spend much, rather put the money into the M....
    Any one have a suggestion on some springs to go with these? ...and actually what else would I need to do the install?

    on the ass dyno thats bullshit, i have driven a car setup with agx shocks and the changes made in between runs were deff noticeable just like they are with the konis. i have had the luxury of driving many setups to base my opinions. just for the record i have driven with illuminas as well.

    if your planning on spending $750-800 why not look into a set of koni yellows and Ground Control slip on coils? best combo for the money. also omnipower streets full coil system is the tits... i have them on my car and they are $800 shipped... i got them for 650 though.:D
