    Shock recommendations

    I posted this question on the suspension forum but there's very little traffic there...

    I have a 98 WS-6 with stock shocks, however, it's got an Eibach Sportsline spring kit installed so it's lowered quite a bit (too much). I'm needing shocks now and so far all I know is that "Koni is the only good shock" for lowered rides.

    Now, I do want to get decent shocks however, I really don't want to spend the coin necessary to get Konis so I'm looking for decent alternatives. This car is my daily driver... if that matters.

    Yeah I think you get cornered into adj shocks once you are lowered.

    I have Strano-tuned Bilsteins with my Eibach Sportlines. They work great and weren't very expensive. You'll feel a big difference from the questionable factory DeCarbons...

    No problem. The Koni adjustables are also worth looking into, especially if you change set-ups regularly.
