    are these any good. ive got a blown strut and need to replace them with something designed for a lowered car. i dont really want adjustables just cause i wouldnt mess with it on top of the price... good god, $500+ for shocks and struts?!?!??! i can get these on Ebay for $179+shipping?

    well i'd like to know if anyone else has used them and how they worked for them. ive got the Pro Kit springs and the KYB's say they are designed to handle no more than a 1.5" drop. seems like theyd work but i dont want to find out the hard way that theyre a POS :dunno:

    Bilstein struts and shocks are the way to go on a lowered car.

    Hey man if you can't afford Bilstein's then so be it.
    That is a great deal on the KYB GR2's I would get them.
    I seen alot of people have good results with the KYB's go for it.

    yah i got the gr2 up front and the kyb gas-a-just out back it rides good up front but the back its really stiff i dont know what is causing this cuz the shocks are still good and its a little better since i added a little thick tire but overall they are good for the money

    from what i read on the gas-a-just they appeared to be a heavy duty shock... that might be why its so still in back. is you car lowered and how long have you been running on the KYB's?

    i looked at the AGX... theyre pretty pricey as well but might be my second choice as they are less expensive than the Tokico Alumina's or the Bilsteins.

    hey man, thanks for the link! every penny counts!!
