I recommend KONI yellows- HIGHLY. They are worth the wait. Just save your money. They are one of my faovirte mods thus far, you can REALLY feel the difference. Dont rush it, you wont be sorry.......

kind of like showoff said....

if youre going to race then go ahead and get adjustables, but if youre just going to look cool then use the extra bucks towards something else. Unless you're like me and are going to spend the $1300 on Mugens. but thats me

i have tokico non-adjustables and i'm satisfied with them. I dont have any complaints...they ride very smooth but somewhat firm also. I didnt get adjustables b/c i figured that i dont really need them. so its just really personal preference and what you're going to be doing.

I have the Blues as well and like them very much. I chose them because I knew I would never bother adjusting shocks. They're a very nice ride.

I'm shocked nobody has mentioned KYB AGX's?


Yes they aren't as reputable/top notch as Koni's, but they are definitely worth the $$ IMO. I've had it for about 1 month now and I'm loving it. I have it set at 2 out of 4 and it's definitely sitffer than stock.

Also I believe the price of the AGX is about the same as the Tokico non-adj, so y not KYB?

I'll second this. I even leave them pretty stiff on the street, it's SO solid on highways or streets with decent surfaces. The more you're lowered, the stiffer you'll probably need the damping to be to avoid bounciness.

too bad they do not still have the groupbuy going, cause then you could get them for 320.00 a set.

Maybe they will do another one soon.

The Koni's u referred to( they are the Red's), they are in fact adjustable, however u would need to disassemble the shock/spring B4 u can adjust the dampening. PITA.

I've never ridden on the Red's, but I would expect them to be high quality as well.

I have the EIback Pro-kit, with a set of KYB AGX shocks, and must say they are WELL Worth the money.. and unless you plan to do even some auto-x I wouldn't waste the extra money on the Koni's... I have mine set at 3of4 ALL around, and do TONS of Philly driving.. the ride is firm, but by no means harsh.. The benefit of having some easily adjustable shocks, on my 4th GEN they adjust with a little screwdriver on the TOP of the shock, is that you can switch back and forth in a matter of minutes.. SO if you have a hot date and wanna have a nice SMOOTH ride you can switch back to the number "1" setting.. and when you drop the ***** off, you can slam it back to the "3" setting...

I have the ProKits and the KYB AGX shocks too. Good setup......

the AGX shocks are the best bang for the money shocks. dun get these shocks if you are lowered more than 1.5" though. KYB will void warrenty with more than a 1.5" drop.
