    You could just put Koni's up front for now, then do the rears later.

    What's your new budget for shocks?
    Also are you just replacing the one spring, or going with a set of lowering springs?

    budget is like 500 at the moment I was thinking strano springs and then just grabing the kyb agx. have a local dealler on the shocks he can get them for me for like 360 im thinking i might be able to get him to let me pay and get the front ones then when i get the last like 200 i can grab the rest. at the same time i could go with the strano springs and just grab something for the moment hell used even.
    thx

    Is that $360 for just the fronts, or all 4 shocks?

    If that's just the fronts, you're paying too much, otherwise great deal!

    Sam Strano is a sponsor on here, you should give him a call. If you want an upgrade you could just get konis for the front, but i'd talk to sam and see what he thinks about this.

    The agx's are a small upgrade over stock and you might wanna look into those.

    360 was for all 4 corners. Yea i really like the strano stuff so i might have to find a way to make a little more spending cash.
