shock question.

i'm just wondering, i have neuspeed race springs... and i'm looking for shocks... now i know the koni yellows would be ideal performance wise.... but not so ideal for my wallet.... so would koni reds be good for those springs as well?? i mean other then the ease of adjustablity on the yellows what is the difference??

slow down boys...

shocks are all good when they are new... it's how well built they are that matters.

Blue are stock replacement more or less
Red are budget performance (internally adjustable)
White are so-so adjustables
Yellow are top of the line (within budget) adjustables

the only reason i think reds are best for cost right now is cause i haven't heard anyone say anything bad about them....

ok, rick, either way of tokico or koni, they will still be a far superior strut than stock oe, which are like those gr2's kyb

you can get reds for about $100/strut
you can get blues for about $120/strut
you can get gr2 for about $120/strut
you can get agx for about $150/strut
you can get whites for about $175/strut
you can get yellows for about $190/strut

hey matt are those prices through nicoles friend?

i've heard to many people say koni reds are the best non adjustable shocks, i know they are adjustable but you gotta take them out to adjust.... kyb's can't be lowered for then 1.5" i'm told so they are all out....
