Konis are great. Do a little research though and you will learn that the fronts are not a direct replacement. If you want a good, high quality, replacement fit shock i'd go with the tokico hts shock (some call it d-spec). Its probably way to much for you if you think 600 is already alot as they go for about 895 shipped.

I believe the guy above is talking about the tokico blues....yes, some shitty reviews. However, the tokico HTS shock is on a totally different level. Its "infinitely" adjustable like the koni yellow is and in the same class as far as handling goes.

Koni Yellows are rebuildable and revalvable to custom specs if desired from what I gather is the upside. The down side for most is the fab work that is needed to the front struts for the inserts.

Tokico HTS is a plug and play application on the upside. They are not rebuildable or revalveable on the down side.

Both offer no drop from OEM height as they should maintain OEM length.

Someone mentioned Skunk2 Sport Shocks. Buyer should be aware of negative reviews from numerous members on here and should do major research before purchasing. These may offer slight drop due to the shorter bodies, other than that, the drop is in the spring choice.

^hmm alright then. i wonder if my stock shocks would be alright with my springs...
They'll be fine for at least 43,000 miles (what I'm at now), depending on how you drive.

Research Koni Yellows on H-T.com There is TONS of information on their products over their. They are basically the number one brand of shocks chosen by racers. Koni Yellows are some of only a handfull of shocks you can buy with confidence in knowing that either the supplier or Koni themselves are going to take care of you in case of a bad shock or a needed revlave or upgrade.

ONLY the Koni front shocks are rebuildable. Both can be custom valved at a cost.
