    2002 WS6 Need Shocks replaced.. Help

    Ok So I wanna replace my shocks all the way around, my car is a daily driver but I also like to drag. So I am kind of in a tossup, My current setup suspension wise is Welded in SubFrames, Non Adjustable Panhard Bar, Non Adjustable Torque Arm. I Know Koni Yellows are the Best but 800.00 is kind of steep right now for me, I did see the set of Bilsteins for 400 but I`m just not sure. Can you all shed some light on this? Oh yea I am keeping my Stock WS6 Springs.

    Thanks

    My life is a
    Ben Stiller movie.

    if you NEVER plan on lowering than go for the Bilsteins.

    Not a fan of lowering, I like the ride height exactly where it is. So you are saying if I am not going to lower then the bilsteins will be fine with my setup?

    i'd consider tokico's... bilstein has had a few qa issues lately.
    remember, shocks will not lower the car... springs will. The only exception is the Koni SA if you use the secondary perch location.
