i'd have to agree with you about kyb's i have them on my t/a. of course i picked up way better hadling than the stock blown-out shocks, but its not what i expected on the curvy stuff. straight line performance on the other hand was a night and day difference. i set the rears on the hardest setting (8) and the fronts on one of the softer settings (3-4)...big difference in my launches, they were worth the $300 or so i payed for them

O.k. so I have KYB adjustable in front but must have thrown the instructions what is the best setting for drag, what will let the front come up easiest?

I guess my question is answered before I asked: put the front on the softest (lowest) setting right? But why hard on the back? seems like backwards? Maybe I'm over-thinking but seems you would want the front stiff and the back soft so the car will want to sit back.

O.K. I can see that, I think it all really depends on getting the weight to transfer and getting the pinion angle to be right when it hooks.

SFC's and strut tower bar has arrived. Wires and plugs still sitting around. Either all around KONI SA's or just the fronts, I'm still wondering. After reading around I think shocks is the absolute #1 thing to do, no matter anything else you do (other than SFC's), and shocks sometimes make or break a car, so unless anyone has another opinion, 4 Koni's ordering this week.
