    kyb: accomedate lowering [if you plan on lowering]
    bilstein's won't handle lower unless they are re-valved.

    Look like I'll get the KYB AGX shocks and struts as well, Seems like everyone likes them. E-Bay prices is around $275 for a full set. My question is are they easy to change out or hard? Haven't changed them before. Thanks

    Ditto! Had mine on setting number 4 out of eight. Was a bit sloppy and mushy. Finally decided to dial in 5 and she got a bit more stiff. Hell ya!! Can't imagine what 8 would be like.

    I think I am going to try #6. The F-Body is a little stiff from the factory anyway.

    Black Z let us know what they feel like? Is your car lowered as well? I guess I'll get the same shocks. Hard to put on? Thanks

    Actually I have not installed them yet. I do have lowering springs (Eibach Sportline), a Hotchkis double-adj. panhard rod, Lakewood lower control arms, and I am waiting on the relocation brackets for the l.c.a.'s. As soon as I install everything, I will post the results and info on this thread I think everything should work out pretty well!

    SLP Bilstein $375 Shipped from Summit! Part # SLE-70008

    I've been very happy with these shocks along with Hotchkis springs on my son's 95 TA. The SLP Bilstein fronts are already re-valved (rears are standard HDs) and work great with a car that is lowered less than an inch. I perfer Hotchkis over the Eibach designed SLP springs.

    I just Installed Koni single adjustable shocks and the Eibach Pro-Kit this past weekend. The car looks much better and handling, launching, accelerating are all very much improved. The Koni shocks are awesome (I highly recommend them) and the car sticks to the road a lot better now. If your installing shocks youself watch out for the top nuts on each strut because they were a pain in the a$$ to get off.

    Kyb are generally for Drag racing applications.

    The Bilsteins are a better all round damper but as mentioned need revalving since you are lowering.

    There is a website that has all four Bilsteins available for just under $300 shipped.
