Skunk2 w/ Shocks or Coilovers

Ok here is my prob.

i have two choices i can do either.

1. get rid of my skunk2's coiliver, and get some full real coilovers like tien.

2. get new shocks. to match with my skunk2's.

i dont want to dorp 1000$, i'd rather just buy shocks. but i am not sure what i want to do. and what will be the diff. i see everyone is matching KYB shocks with Skunk2's but i dont know. . any insight from anyone?

my friend who does autocross says that skunk2s are pretty much worthless as far as Performance goes. if you want looks, i'd keep the skunks, but if you really wanna handle, get some hotchkiss stuff. (p.s. if you are planning on getting rid of your skunks i would be interested in them as i am not too concerned with increasing my handling thumbsup)

ya, its my girlfriend grin


.. . see i already have skunk2's on my car, i mean this is what i want. ..

when i hit some bumps. it bounces to much. need to get rid of that, and 2nd if i hit some bumps to hard i can pretty much hear my shock slam, i know this is not good. i dont know if i need new struts and i dont know how to tell, but i might as well buy them now too. . but i already have skunk2 i just dont know if i should get rid of them.. . but i still want adjustability. . . in both shock and spring
