    Shocks & Springs on a 2002 WS6

    I would like to hear your guys opinions on what shocks & spring to run.
    I am sort of looking at Strano Performance Sp141 set of springs.
    Then I am looking at the difference in price for the Koni sport vs KYB AGX shocks.
    Can any body tell me you experiences with these shocks?

    Yup.

    KYB = suck compared to Koni. A lot.
    Koni = Can dampen any springs. Worth every penny.

    I have The AGX on my TA and KYB's on my 93 5.0 and there good shocks.
    Koni=Better but not all of us wanna spend that much considering my AGX's were $370 Shipped. If I was building a road race car I would have bough the Koni's but I wanted larger sway bars and springs and the money I saved on the shock pretty much paid for the other mods.
    If you have the money buy Koni if you don't I like the Agx's ride and handling with my BMR's and my friends Strano springs.

    I hated my KYBs. Money wasted IMO.

    Spring & shocks

    Did you take the KYB off & installed Koni's & enjoyed the Koni's?

    If that question was for me, yes, that is correct.

    They are junk. I have always said the same, worst mistake I made with my Camaro was KYBs as well. You couldn't pay me to put those on another car of mine.

    Hello Scott
    I have a most stock 98 WS6 LS1 I did I lot of investgating on the bilstein B6 and the KYB AXG
    and what I found ou is the Bilstien B6 are much better,The Koni are very good but big money,as for changing the spring I would just try the bilsein then maybe change the sprins,this car has VERY little room to lower the car and rasing you could lose handling abilty,I bought my shocks for $444 at shock warehouse.com
