    best shocks?

    my front shocks are starting to creak, I think it's time for some new ones. I just got a new job getting paid $9 an hour, so i'll have some money coming in, but not too much. what's the best shock for the money? I was thinking of getting Konis, but those are kinda pricey...

    Everybody loves Konis. For the money though, Bilsteins are really good.

    actually, the Koni SAs aren't too bad. I was looking at the DAs, which are way more. I would prefer the SAs anyways. I heard that Bilstein HD's are good for the rear?

    As long as you are running stock springs Bilsteins are perfect shocks for our cars.

    The Bilsteins should have been put on from the factory imo!

    Everyone is going to tell you that the Koni DAs are over kill for our cars unless you have a real race car. I happened to get them at a really good deal and love them. If you ever plan to drop the car I'd get the SAs. If you dont and just want a really good replacement for a lower price I'd go with the HDs
