    Oh kind sir, forgive us for not answering your question immediately after it was posted! We only live and breathe to be at your beck and call, and to answer your questions with the accumulated knowledge of the universe. Forgive us this one transgression and we will be eternally grateful for your kindness to us.... NOT! Some of us have a life outside of our hobby, hard as that might be to comprehend. It's how we can afford our addiction. You might actually have to wait a day or two for an answer, rare in these days of instant gratification. Bilstein, whether you believe me or not. Get the revalved ones.

    I dont know where you got the idea im 18 seeing how i am 24 but even for someone to be 18 in Orange County California instead of OHIO with my position is very possible, especially if you are lucky enough to of had the connections i was fortunate to get. do you never read the newspaper or watch the news and see these millionaires before the age of 30...... Trust me, what im doing is very possible, im sure there are other people who will say the same. Say what you want but im not going to waste anymore of my time with people like you who just look for things to try and bring people down on to make themselves feel better about there misfortune, so talk all you want but i wont be checkin in to see what was said.

    Go with Bilstein sports, or the slp bilstein HDs. They will outlast your car. plus I've heard of many people going through KYB's in weeks. Go german over Jap.

    I just bought a set of AGX's and Eibach springs. Haven't got them installed yet. But I have heard a lot of good things about them. Can't wait to get them installed and see how it looks and handles.
