    Are those adjustable?
    Or it don't matter if they are adjustable or not?

    go bilstein..the spring rates for the strano springs require a good shock to control it..while konis are perfect for the stranos ..the bilsteins are decent.

    I Checkd on strano parts and they are two kinds of
    Bilsteins
    Slp bilsteins
    And Bilsteins HD.
    Same prices I belive
    What's the difference on them?

    you would want the slp Bs ..they are valved to handle the slp eibach lowering springs..so they are valved mroe for a lowering spring than the others.

    So I should get the slp bilsteins right.?
    So with the stranos and the slp bilsteins will be a good combo then.
    How many inches will be the drop?

    I run kyb's and love the adjusability with my BMR's and my friend has the same shocks but with Strano's and his car rides great. We each have ours set different I like a softer ride for highway cruises and tighten them up for tearing down tight backroads. I have to say for the money the AGX is a great shock, not quite a Koni but I like you could afford springs and koni's with also adding sway bars. I say go with KYB and you'll be happy as soon as you take a few rides and get them set the way you like. Took me a week to get the perfect setting for daily and then a second set of high speed corners for backroads fun.

    KYBs are terrible IMO. I have swapped the rears out and will trash the front ones ASAP. I regret buying KYBs as badly as I regret doing any transactions with SLP.

    I was lookin at the kyb's right now
    And the price is cheapper $400 is not to much for the bilsteins I will pay that but I will like to save some cash
    The good thing bout kyb is that they are adjustable

    Idk exactly which ones to get but I'm sure both are good options

    I want the car to feel sport and with a good handling

    next time I get new front struts I'm getting KONIs!!
    I have bilsteins right now and I have no complaints about the ride. the instal is F**king rediculous!! why would bilstein design the strut so that the shaft spins around. it makes it frustrating beyond belief to get the nut off. especialy if it gets rusty which happens pretty commonly on our cars
