KYBs are alot more easy on the wallet than knois....i know konis are the best but how would KYBs be with say a 2" drop....is it worth it?....i really dont want to spend 600$ on knois...also 2" on all four corners may look silly with the rear wheel well like it is...what do you think of 2 in front and 1.5 in back with stock 16's (rims are next but need to wait)....any info would help...thanx

"The KYBs are going to be a great improvement over stock since they
are Gas Struts"

KYB's are a stock rate but gas charged instead of oil. I'd get Bilsteins. Theyre tighter valved so theyd match the GC's well (stock valving would be bouncy), And have a shortened piston for lowered cars which means longer life. IMO Konis are "the best" because theyre the only strut available to us that are adjustable. I really really like my Bilsteins, and i only have them in the front

edit: 2" up front 1.5" in the back would be hot :thumbsup:

Of course he would say that, he is a salesman.

ov3n has KYB struts with his GC, and it is hella bouncy.
GC NEEDS to be paired with a tightly valved strut.
