    Shocks and your opinions???

    Ok here goes.
    I am slowly running out of money for modding the car and my wedding day is getting way to close to spend any more on the car for now.

    I can't afford koni's till the end of summer point blank

    I can afford the $313 billy's on summits website. I might be able to stretch and save up for the strano billy's too

    My stock shocks are really bad, they make noises and i think they leak.

    So the poll is do I buy the summit billys rock them for the summer. Sell them for about 200 at the end of summer (if i get that) and then get koni's

    Buy strano billys and be done with it

    rock the stockers all summer and deal with the bad ride and buy the koni in the winter

    or other

    One of the worst mistakes you will make modifying your car is cheaping out on the shocks.

    I'm w/ WS6ick on this one. Buy the balls cheap one now, and buy the koni's in the summer.

    Or, just ride stocks until you can afford the koni's.

    The bad shocks will be a little rough on your tires.

    You mean to tell us that you and the wife to be didn't register your wedding at the local speed shop? We could have all chipped in for the Konis! Now you are going to be stuck with crap like gravy bowls and candlesticks...

    I'll let you drive my Camaro and you will be set on the Koni's. I would just wait until late summer to upgrade.
