    Shocks are designed for the intended use. Drag shocks are soft on compression to help with weight transfer, konis etc. are stiff compression and rebound for road racing but will give a much harsher ride. Daily drivers should get oem replacements, they are good balance of ride and handling. SLP used to have the oem takeoffs for real cheap, others may have the oem for a good price.

    The GM parts are $144 for the pair.

    i run the comp engineering on mine. i have them set to the softest right now. the rear really comes down on the launch.

    what you want to do with the car will determine the shock you'll want to get.
