    Okay, I will be running a Bseries engine in about 2/3 weeks in my 4dr, and I'm getting a moderate suspension setup since I live in NYC with Bad Potholes, and I do alot of driving. I will be running HR Sport Springs with either one of the 2. Tokico Premium Performance Shock-(the blue ones, I think HPs) or KYB GR2 Shocks. I plan to drop it a couple of weeks after the swap. Please give detailed explanations. Thankyou

    If you just want to maintain ride quality but still with minimal performace gains I would say both of them would work fine. I would go with the HP's over the GR2's. If you want better performance (like in AutoX and whatnot) then you should look to the AGX's or Illuminas (which I would choose, but I'm a Tokico person, not a KYB person). They're only about $150 more.

    With all those bad potholes, pick the one with best warranty and customer service.

    The HPs are not bad, but I would go with the Illuminas so you can adjust the ride if you don't like the HPs. Or any adjustable for that matter, I hate being locked into one stiffness, sometimes soft is good, and sometimes stiff is good, and a nice mix of both can make you car drive like a completely different beast.
