    They sure are pricey for the good adjustable ones(Koni's). You get what you pay for though.

    i personally dont have them...yet. but ive heard theyre worth it. ive looked at the adjustable KYB's but everyone jokes about KYB meaning Keeps You Bouncing so im not to sure about them. I had the cheap KYB's on my 65 Mustang and felt bouncing but it was fresh crazy stiff suspension and i sold the car before it even had 700 miles

    Just stay away from Eibachs, most people get the Koni SA and your choice of springs.

    Ahhh, Drag Launch springs are the furthest thing from handling or lowering springs there are. They are quite tall and soft to promote the greatest weight tranfer possible.

    There are lots of options... fewer good options. I handle every spring and shock brand I recall seeing mentioned, including the Drag Launch set and would be happy to compare/contrast them--even tell you which shocks work best with which springs. It's what I do.
