    do you mean springs?
    if so the factory springs are best matched for a shock like that. i wouldn't change them.

    No on the first link, and from experience, no on the KYBs as well.

    well for a budget shock that is better then stock..kyb will probbally do him good. i could have said koni's..but judging on his first choice i dont think he is looking to spend that money

    Koni's I've heard are great. This is just a DD so I don't want to go crazy on high performance stuff. Just something that is good quality and will last - not leak.

    What set of Koni's would you suggest?

    kyb gas-adjust are mono tube design and a step up[or more] from the gr2's. they came highly recomended locally, about 330-350 i think at federated auto parts.

    kyb's and bilstein are about the same quality right? Ride wise and handling?

    kyb's don't stand behind their product if something goes wrong either...that's what sam says
