    Replacement Shocks

    My stock shocks are worn out on my 02 Z. Any recommendations for good replacements. I like curvy mountain roads better than drag racing.

    if you like taking twisty roads and haven't installed sfc's i would recommend looking into it to keep your body from flexing as far as your budget goes leo said it right, bilsteins if you want a good shock at a decent price, konis if you want a great shock and can fork out the cash for them

    Go with the Bilstein's and pocket the 400.00 extra you would have spent on the Koni's. If you run in events like SCCA and road rally's then SFC and Koni's and wheels and tires are in your near future, but for just taking some hot turns around town you can't beat SLP Bilstein's. Shop around and you can find them for under 100 dollars each. Also think about sway bars and poly bushings. Good luck.

    Koni's rock, they are the best... if you are looking for the best shocks other than Koni, then it'd be Bilstein.... Generally have lots in stock and they are good bit under $400/set (figure around $407 delivered to most places).
