Thanx

that's what i use, and they work good for me. i haven't really messed aroud with tuning them, right now they are on the middle setting (#2 front, #4 rear). when i did them, i also upgraded my springs to the racing beat set.



good shocks for the price, much cheaper than the tokico illumina sets. i'd recommend them.

when i first got them out of the box I pushed and pulled on them, adjusting the different settings and there is definatley a huge different from 1 to 4. 1 you can compress and expand, but it takes some force, 2 is almost impossible to push,but you can do it, and 4 is a brick.



i guess that means it does what it says it does? They've worked well for me.

i actually want to (when i can afford it) do the full kyb agx suspension setup, when i can afford it. for the price, it seems to be my best bet, and i'll be able to buy it straight from here.

I am running KYB AGX's up front and they work like a champ considering my rear struts are the factory ones that probably come off the assembly line, maybe not. It handles 10 times better. I can't wait for the money to do the rear struts, and do a H&R spring setup. Suspension **** first, and new brakes and rotors so I can STOP! Heh.



Yeah, go with KYB AGX's, they are good for the price. Plus they give you cool stickers and the little adjustable screwdrivers. And they come in red.

I did that also. I was amazed.



And another thing I forgot to mention. They are adjustable, oh yes, and another. The rear struts for the KYB's are 8 way adjustable.



I have only messed around with 2 different settings. The first and second setting. No difference. I can take turns going 65 now, instead of going 40 like I use to. And hairpin turns, and I mean ******* hairpins, I can take 45 instead of having to go 20. Just my experiences.

I use them in my TII for Autocrossing ( 2 on front 1 in rear) and Road Course (4 in front 6 in rear) they are some nice shocks that will serve you well.



If there are better shocks out there (which I hear there are) I am amazed I cannot imagine it being better than this.
