Which Strut/Shocks should i go with ?

My stock struts on my 2000 GTS need to be replaced...Toyota want $801.00 to replace them!!!!! F*** that! So instead of paying $801.00 to get "STOCK" struts put back in my car, i'd rather pay $300.00 for Performance struts/shock set. The only problem i'm running into is which coilover kit will fot withou a problem. I want to go with KYB AGX strut/shocks but i have no clue which coil to go with!! I've called manufactures of Tokico and KYB and they don't even know. Skunk2 told me that the strut/shocks need to be the same size as the stock ones. i really don't want to do just lowering springs...i'd rather coils...i don't know i'm just confused and need some help. Thanks ... -Brian

Hotchkis springs + KYB AGX is good and so is TEIN springs + KYB AGX

No matter what spring you choose, don't go lower than 2" with the KYB AGX.

Depends how much drop you want, if any. I have Tokico Shocks/Struts/Springs. Modest 1.25" drop, but I am happy with the ride and stance.

I have the KYB AGX with Skunk2 coilovers. I like them a lot they are really nice from a Performance stand point. For Daily driving it is kinda bumpy but you get used to it. When you turn those struts all the way up and the coilovers down you will handle like no other!

yeah, i've got the tanabe df210 superdowns with my kyb agx, they are a little bit more bumpy than stock. but overall i'd say they're great, i've got them on the second softest setting and love them. thumbsup i was actually kind of worried how it would ride with such a low drop, but it's not too bad.
