    are all the suspension parts adjustable ones??? my guess is that one or more of them might be out of alignment...

    speaking about shocks. I know konis are the best for our vehicles but I really can afford those. What will be best option:

    Bilsteins or KYB adjustables? KYB adjustable fronts are on sale at tirerack.com and if you have lowering springs on the front, do i still have to do that mod to the shock mounts and cut that 1 inch off?
    Do these work with stock springs?

    ok so i guess bilsteins it is then. Do they work with OEM springs? My rear ones are stock height.

    Also the car is DD will these make my ride too stiff?

    yeah... but if you think about it you'll be spending 450-600 for all 4 shocks either way... might as well throw out a few more bones and get superior quality stuff...
