Koni adjustables.. mine are doing perfectly with my hotchkis springs and can handle a lower car with no problems (I'll probably get a longer life with them than stock and i'm lowered with Hotchkis springs)

yeah,but to install koni ,you will have to cut the OEM shock I think? I just wanna get new shocks which will last 2-3 years and a 1.5-2.5 drop.

say. tokico illuminate or KYB AGX

I went the Koni route but if I had to do it again I'd of went with tokico AGX. I paired em with hotchkis street springs which I for sure liked! The drop as well as the ride was very nice.

I have kyb agx's and eibach sportlines paired with the kam kit and 17's I love the look and the ride(there's some good pics on my cardomain) but i think I just blew my front right strut yesterday after only 4-5 months of driving which makes me think twice about recomending the agx's to anyone. This might be an anomaly but I'd look into it before purchasing agx's anyway. I actually just started a thread about so we'll see what people have to say.

You blew it because you are WAY too low for those. Most/all aftermarker struts are good for only down to 1.5, more than that, you will blow shocks.

Really?... I know so many people who have my exact suspension set up who never experienced any problems. I may not know what I'm talking about but why would eibach make springs that drop a car too low for "most/all" after market struts? Doesn't eibach make their own struts? That would be absurd if eibach's springs were to low for their own struts, don't you think?
