Shocks?

i'm new to the suspension tuning world, a lot of people reccomend koni reds, and KYB GR-2's when they say adjustable, what does that mean?

oh and another thing, i'm planning to put a buddy blub rear bumper and a type r or JUN front lip, if i lowered my car 1.75 in the front and 1.5 in the back, would it still look too high, i still want to be able to get over speed bumps, with out the whole sidways thing

thx

Adjustable with reference to KYB AGX (I'm not sure about GR2s) is the amount of damping...distance of travel. The AGX have settings from 1 (soft..like stock) to 4 (stiff, tight ride).

I think the koni reds work the same way. Koni yellows are ride height adjustable.

1.75/1.5 drop is moderate. I have 1.8 in the front and 1.6 in the rear, and for the most part I'm satisfied. I have no problems with speedbumps, and it looks good.
